Live In Rio
About this deal
The swagger of the original version is front and centre here, with the back and forth between Depp and Perry culminating in a wicked solo from the latter that is as mesmerizing as it is humbling. That songs like ‘Cold Turkey’, ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and ‘Brown Sugar’ belong to the timeless classics is well known and also on this release the sound of those stunning moments in rock enchant the listener. That year also saw the band play at Rock In Rio to over 100,000 people, which was recorded and has now been mixed ready for release on June 2.
And let’s face it, if The Rolling Stones will no longer play the great “Brown Sugar,” the villain Cooper will with his army of vampires ending the show with the crowd loving every second of it, singing along and showing that hard rock and classic music is still wanted around the world.
After this success and the media interest in the ultimate rock group, sold-out concerts, and tours all over the world followed, and in 2019, finally, the second album "Rise". Hollywood Vampires, the self-described "best bar band in the world", consists of core members and rock legends Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Aerosmith's Joe Perry, together with guitarist Tommy Henriksen.
Another of Cooper’s own songs in Million Dollar Babies completes the set, with Cooper announcing Andreas Kisser ( Sepultura) on guitar. The result is a unique show and you can be excited about the musical fireworks the guys will deliver on this year’s summer tour. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. This is more of a blues/rock number which is carried by a tough as fuck guitar riff that toys with Cooper’s vocals in a tit-for-tat battle that sees music as the only winner.Jimi Hendrix‘s song Manic Depression is up next and should prove the first real test when it comes to authenticity. He seems to find a renewed vigour playing even his own material with the Vampires, who treat the song with the respect it deserves. And just like that, Johnny was writing, Joe was writing, Tommy was writing, I was writing … and we just all kind of put it together while I was on tour. In 2015, the American supergroup Hollywood Vampires performed their biggest and one of their most legendary concerts in front of over 100,000 fans.
At times he almost has a Joey Ramone type thing going on on this version and I think it really works. My instinct might be to say that this part goes too long or the intro goes too long, but that's what makes it interesting. That setlist featured more of their original tunes and has the current lineup with Glen and Chris, which I think is WAY WAY better than Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan.Due to inventory and accounting purposes, we do not exchange items received for different items than originally purchased.
