The A-lister's rock band, Hollywood Vampires will play Fængslet in Horsens this summer.
Hollywood Vampires, featuring Alice Cooper, movie star Johnny Depp and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, will perform on June 1st at Fængslet at Horsens, a former state penitentiary that now serves as a cultural centre, the venue announced on Wednesday.
 
“I’m proud to be able to present Hollywood Vampires in Horsens. They are only playing six concerts in Europe, so for us this is sensational. I’d say it’s quite the scoop to have Johnny Depp and the boys coming to town,” Frank Panduro of Horsens & Friends said in a press release. 
 
The supergroup was formed last year by the A-list 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'Edward Scissorhands' actor and his rocker friends to honour the music of fellow icons who died from excess in the 1970s.
 
It takes its name from a celebrity drinking club and sometime band formed by Alice Cooper 40 years ago which apparently included The Who drummer Keith Moon and at least one member of The Beatles.
 
Hollywood Vampires released their debut album last year, which featured appearances from stars Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Dracula star Christopher Lee.
 
Panduro called the band members "show masters" but also hinted that there would be reason to come to the concert even if their music isn't to one's taste. 
 
"They're on tour to have a good time so I think we will have an enormous experience. And if the wife isn't in to rock music, then maybe Johnny Depp can tempt her by his mere presence," he said. 
 
The former Horsens State Penitentiary has hosted a number of big-name acts since the last inmate left the facility in 2006. In addition to the concert venue, the former prison now also hosts a Prison Museum and even a prison hotel in the former infirmary ward.
