Joe Perry Returns To Vampirism
He’s baaaaack: Joe Perry is scheduled to rejoin his Hollywood Vampires bandmates onstage tonight as they lay out some rock and roll and refrain from draining the blood from fans at Rohnert Park, California’s Weill Hall at Sonoma State University.
Perry gave us all a big scare when he collapsed Sunday July 10 during the band’s gig at Brooklyn’s Coney Island and was rushed to hospital.
Head Vampire and cosmetics afficionado Alice Cooper tweeted: “Joe is back! Joe Perry returns to the hollywoodvamps tour tomorrow, 7/22 & will be with us thru the end!”
We’re still not certain what caused Perry to hit the floor; various sources have been mumbling about everything from cardiac arrest to dehydration and exhaustion — and of course, given his history, a possible drug relapse. Because rock and roll.
The Hollwood Vampires’ tour dates are (subject to change):
- Friday July 22 – Rohnert Park, CA – Weill Hall at Sonoma State University
- Saturday July 23 – Jacksonville, OR – Britt Pavilion
- Sunday July 24 – Saratoga, CA – The Mountain Winery
- Monday July 25 – Paso Robles, CA – California Mid-State Fair Grandstand
The Hollywood Vampires also count among their members Johnny Depp, Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo and former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum, among others.
