Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry’s supergroup Hollywood Vampires are coming to the UK

They'll be joined by some very special guests

Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup made up of Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry have announced details of a UK tour. Full dates and ticket details are below.

Making their live debut in the UK, the band will be joined by fellow hard rock veterans The Darkness and The Damned.

Hollywood Vampires began in the 1970s on the Sunset Strip at the Rainbow Bar & Grill’s upstairs bar, and has welcomed a rotation of stars passing through LA throughout the years.

“To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members,” said founder Alice Cooper. “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.”

Speaking of what to expect from the tour, Depp warned that “there will be rumbling in ears and there might be blood trickling out of one ear,” while Perry added “I don’t say things like this often, but this band is (bleeping) good,”

Meanwhile, rumours recently surfaced that Johnny Depp may be joining Manson’s band as guitarist.

The shock-rock icon is known for his close friendship with the acting icon, and last year enlisted him to star in the dark and twisted video for album track ‘KILL4ME’.

In the clip, which was released last November, Depp is seen brooding in a mansion before engaging in a threesome with two women.

Now, Manson has hinted that Depp could become a full time member of his band, after claiming that he is “considering” a role.
