“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 to expect at The Hollywood Vampires show.
“…the evening’s shredding-est, flaming-est, rock-’n’-rolliest five minutes.” – Spin
“…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 at The Sands Event Center 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.
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.
