Hollywood Vampires to make late-night debut on Colbert
The Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper supergroup will hit 'The Late Show' Monday
The Hollywood Vampires will make their late-night debut Monday, the band announced Thursday.
The supergroup — made up of Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry — will stop by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in the midst of their first U.S. tour.
The rock crew previously hit television for last February’s Grammy Awards, performing a touching tribute to late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister. They recently launched an 18-date North American trek, which wraps in Paso Robles, California later this month.
Joining Hollywood Vampires on tour are drummer Matt Sorum (the Cult, Guns N’ Roses), guitarist Tommy Henriksen (Alice Cooper’s band) and pianist, percussionist, and guitarist Bruce Witkin (Johnny Depp’s group the Kids). Stone Temple Pilots’ Robert DeLeo will fill in on bass for Duff McKagan, who’s currently on the road for Guns N’ Roses’ reunion tour.
In February, the group put out a deluxe edition of their self-titled debut, a collection of cover songs by what Cooper has called his “dead drunk friends,” as well as original tracks. The fresh release added versions of the Who’s “I’m a Boy,” Love’s “7 and 7 Is” and the Depp-penned original “As Bad as I Am.”
The Hollywood Vampires Late Show set airs July 11 at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
