Hollywood Vampires have lined up four massive arena shows for summer 2018.
Taking in Birmingham Genting Arena, Manchester Arena, Glasgow SSE Hydro and London SSE Arena Wembley this June, the quartet of shows are Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp’s first ever gigs together in the UK.
As if the lure of Hollywood Vampires wasn’t enough, the trio will be joined by ever-flamboyant rockers The Darkness and punk torchbearers The Damned at all four shows.
Tickets to all four shows go on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 9am on Friday 9th February.
Hollywood Vampires take their name from the celebrity drinking club formed by Alice in 1970 at Rainbow Bar & Grill on Sunset Boulevard. “To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members,” says the Planet Rock DJ.
“I would walk in on a typical night and John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon—who would usually be in a costume like a maid or a chauffeur—Bernie Taupin, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz would be there. The next week might be Bernie Taupin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz.”
Hollywood Vampires released their self-titled, Bob Ezrin-produced debut album on 11th September 2015 featuring guest spots from Brian Johnson, Perry Farrell, Sir Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, Slash, Orianthi and the late-great Sir Christopher Lee.
The following week they played two inaugural star-studded shows at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles and in 2016 they headed out on their debut headline tour, which took in North America and a handful of dates in Europe, Brazil and Japan.
The shows this June will be fans’ first chance to see Hollywood Vampires on UK soil.
