Hollywood Vampires announce 2016 tour

Alice Cooper’s supergroup The Hollywood Vampires have announced dates for their first extended tour.

In addition to a previously announced show at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York on May 24, the band will perform a series of European concerts and some additional US dates.

New additions to the schedule include stops in Sweden, Denmark and Romania in May and June, and a July show at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mt. Pleasant, MI.

Led by founders Cooper, Johnny Depp and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, Hollywood Vampires also includes Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum, Tommy Henriksen and Bruce Witkin.

The group’s live schedule is built around touring commitments to other projects by its members.

“We have to carefully schedule the Vampires,” Cooper tells Rolling Stone. “That’s because you have Johnny’s movie schedule, you’ve got Aerosmith, you’ve got Guns N’ Roses and you’ve got me! It’s five entities going five different directions.

“To get those guys all at once when we’re not working is really unique, so everybody looks at their calendar and you have to find that two weeks where everybody’s off.”

Cooper recently confirmed the band have begun working on a follow-up to their 2015 self-titled debut, which featured a collection of covers of tracks by The Who, John Lennon, T. Rex and more.
