(hennemusic) Alice Cooper has announced three live dates for his all-star covers outfit, Hollywood Vampires and has added former Guns N' Roses rhythm section of Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum to the live lineup of the group that also features Aerosmith's Joe Perry.

Set to release their self-titled debut album on September 11, the project led by the trio of Cooper, Perry, and Johnny Depp will be rounded out in concert by McKagan, Sorum plus guitarist Tommy Henriksen and pianist/guitarist Bruce Witkin.

Hollywood Vampires will perform two shows at The Roxy in Los Angeles on September 16 and 17 and play Brazil's Rock In Rio on September 24. Conceived by Cooper, the Hollywood Vampires project celebrates the spirit of the original drinking club of the same name that gathered at the upstairs bar of the Rainbow Bar & Grill on Sunset Strip, Los Angeles from 1972, of which Cooper was a founding member.

Attendees would include high-profile musicians like John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon, Bernie Taupin, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz. The album, which presents covers of classic tunes by T. Rex, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Doors and more, sees contributions from an all-star lineup that includes Sir Paul McCartney, Perry Farrell, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, Slash, Robbie Krieger, Zak Starkey, Brian Johnson and Kip Winger.
