Hollywood vampires are bringing their latest UK tour to Manchester’s AO Arena. The six-date tour will kick off on July 5 in Scarborough and will visit AO Arena on July 8.

The band, made up of Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry and Tommy Henriksen, were forced to cancel their planned 2020 tour due to the pandemic. Ahead of the tour, Alice Cooper said: "Well, it’s already been three years since the Vampires have toured because of Covid. Also, Johnny has his movies, Joe’s in Aerosmith and I’m in Alice Cooper, so we have to look at that whole thing and see when we can all get a month or two off where we can go out and tour. And, we are going to be doing that, next summer coming up, 2023.

“I can’t wait to get back with the guys, I really love being in that band. My band is great and wonderful, but playing with the Vampires is an entirely different situation.

“We’ll be rocking these places, especially the UK, I can’t wait to get to the UK! Lock your doors, put garlic all around, because the Vampires are coming!"
