Hollywood Vampires have announced a European tour which will take place in August and September 2020.

Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp will play a total of 11 shows in support of their latest studio album Rise, which launched back in June through earMUSIC.

And to mark the announcement, the band have released a video for their Rise track I Want My Now, which features live footage cut with backstage film.

Speaking about the follow-up to their self-titled 2015 album, Aerosmith guitarist Perry said: “Rise came from pure creative energy, which is just like playing live with the Vampires. The record showcases everyone doing what they do best without anyone looking over our shoulders. 

“There was no pressure or deadlines, allowing us to write and record an album that is one of the freest and most honest sounding records I’ve been part of.”

Tickets will go on general sale this coming Friday (November 22) along with VIP packages which will include meet and greet opportunities.

Further dates are expected to be revealed in the near future.
