Johnny Depp supergroup coming to town

Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup band consisting of Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper and Aerosmith's Joe Perry, will perform at the Fraze Pavilion on July 12 at 7:30 p.m. as part of their first tour.

Cooper and Depp formed the band three years ago in honor of the exclusive celebrity drinking club formed on the Sunset Strip in 1972. Members of the drinking club included Cooper, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Bernie Taupin, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Keith Moon and other notable musicians.

The Hollywood Vampires band released a debut studio album in 2015, featuring Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Slash, Joe Walsh and others. The album includes covers of "Whole Lotta Love," "Come and Get It" and "School's Out/Another Brick in the Wall part 2," as well as original recordings of "The Last Vampire," "Raise the Dead" and "My Dead Drunk Friends."

Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 9, and will range from $59-$99. A VIP merchandise package for $275 and a VIP Ultimate Meet & Greet Package for $1,500 are available online only.
