VIDEO: Alice Cooper, Steven Tyler, Joe Perry & Johnny Depp rock Dark Shadows premiere party

Alice Cooper has posted the following:

Last night's premier of the new Tim Burton film, "Dark Shadows", will go down in the books of rock history.

Legendary rocker Alice Cooper is featured heavily in the film, with Tim Burton relying on Dwight Frye for the movie's most pivotal scene. Alice looked great, and he should because they digitized his face to make him look just as he did in 1972!

As great as the film was, nothing could top Tim Burton's after-party, thrown across the street behind the El Capitan Theater, where Warner Brothers recreated the ballroom from the movie for a surprise live performance by Alice Cooper himself!

Alice brought with him his band, with Orianthi, Tommy Henriksen and Keri Kelli on guitar, Chuck Garric on bass, and Glen Sobel on drums. Also guesting for the evening was Alice's old friend Johnny Depp! Johnny joined Alice on stage last year at the 100 Club, and this was the perfect opportunity to "get the band back together," as Alice put it.

As if that weren't enough, the four guitarists were then joined by legendary Aerosmith axeman Joe Perry! The impromptu supergroup played some Cooper classics before introducing yet another surprise guest, Aerosmith frontman and "demon of screamin" Steven Tyler. The huge behemoth of a band went through "Come Together", then Steven Tyler whispered into Chuck Garric's ear, "Know 'Whole Lotta Love'?"... you can guess what happened next!

The whole night was fantastic, and Alice performing the after-party was icing on the cake.
