The Musician's Ear
If you could askThe Hollywood Vampires one question, what would it be?
I see someone asked about what movie Johnny is doing next. Kind of a boring question for the Vampires at first glance, but on reflection, I'd like to know the answer as well, especially seeing as he'll be on tour for a good chunk of late spring/summer. As it stands now, it looks like there's about a month between the international dates and U.S. dates. If he hasn't already done the voice work for Sherlock Gnomes, maybe he'll be working on that. So far I think Invisible Man is the only other movie he's committed to, and who knows when that will start.

:highfive:
I guess he has the Alice promos and maybe Yoga Hosers.
Maybe he is taking the year off to pursue the music for a bit.
Or perhaps he's working on that Keith Richards documentary? :perplexed:

It would be awesome for them to play in Houston, but so far I can't find anything other than the link that humiliated grape posted, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and hoping they'll officially announce a concert here! :hope: :pray:
Wait for the Opportune Moment!

What, no Canada?

Maybe Johnny will suggest to the others to add Vancouver to the tour, since he is here now and enjoying our beautiful city. One can hope.

Vancouver seems like one of the world's coolest cities. At least one of my favorite bands is from there, Skinny Puppy. Their vocalist Nivek Ogre just happened to be in the audience the night of the infamous P Halloween show because he was buddies with Gibby's buddy Al Jourgensen (Ministry) who was sitting in on slide guitar that night. While I can't really picture Skinny Puppy on a bill with the Vampires, I do believe Ogre was heavily influenced by Alice Cooper in terms of stage theatrics and playing with the "front man" persona. Just a bit of trivia inspired by Vancouver and music.

LOS ANGELES, April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Following their wildly successful concerts at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, in front of 100,000 screaming fans at the Rock in Rio festival, and their spectacular worldwide television debut on the 2016 GRAMMY Awards® reaching a global audience of almost 25 million people, fans worldwide demanded more. The Hollywood Vampires - Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp – always deliver and arranged their schedules to give their fans what they want.

Today, The Hollywood Vampires announce a full summer tour across the U.S. and Europe kicking off May 24 in Verona, New York and continuing through. Joining the Hollywood Vampires on tour will be their rock star musician friends and modern day Vampires Matt Sorum (GunsN'Roses/Cult) on drums, Robert DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots) on bass, Tommy Henriksen (Alice Cooper) on guitar, and Bruce Witkin (The Kids) on piano, percussion and guitar. For tickets, visit www.hollywoodvampires.com/#tour.

"Here is a gang of friends who came together really by chance and over the last year we were finally able to wrangle our schedules and the energy just fell into place. Playing with this line up is like a dream come true. After seeing the reaction at Rock in Rio in front of 100,000 fans, I know this band is going to tear the house down. Hell, I would want to be in the audience to see us rip it up." – Joe Perry

Reviews from their recent performances give fans a glimpse of what to expect at The Hollywood Vampires show.

"A gang of rock's baddest asses and Hollywood's coolest cat brought back the swagger, glamour and danger to Sunset strip. Legendary? It almost seems insufficient a term..." – Kerrang!

"…the band played the boisterous, bluesy 'As Bad As I Am,' an outtake from its self-titled album, which came out last September. Cooper took the stage in a bloodstained white shirt, black gloves, and black leather pants, and marched back and forth as jets of flames licked the sky. Depp did a brief half-sung, half-spoken passage and launched into a solo. Then Perry took control with a seasoned, spicy lead that matched the groove of the tune." – Yahoo! Music

A super-group comprised of rock royalty and a Hollywood superstar, the Vampires will hit the stage offering fans a non-stop, energetic rock concert like no other, performing their new single "Bad As I Am" from their new deluxe album, as well as renditions of popular classics including "My Generation," "Whole Lotta Love," and a "School's Out"/"Another Brick in the Wall" medley.

The Hollywood Vampires released a new digital deluxe version of their self-titled album. This expanded version includes three additional songs, including one original and two rocking covers. Buy: iTunes Google Play. The deluxe version includes the scorching new single "Bad As I Am" an original song penned by Johnny Depp, Tommy Henriksen, and Bruce Witkin and features Matt Sorum, Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, and Johnny Depp. Also included is "I'm A Boy," a Who original, that was only available as a Japanese bonus track. "7 and 7 Is" is an unreleased track from the album sessions and is the classic song by the legendary Los Angeles band Love, a Vampires special pick and one that Alice covered on his 1981 solo album, Special Forces.

In 1969 on the Sunset Strip at a club called the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Hollywood Vampires were born in the upstairs bar. It was a gathering place for the rock stars living in or passing through L.A. "To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members," says Alice Cooper, a founding member of the original Vampires.

Cooper and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking). Cooper and Depp were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both, and the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires. An environment was born for great artists to hang, laugh and play together.
