The next 7 July in Lucca will be held a more unique event that rare: to sing on the stage of the Tuscan capital in fact there will be the most requested rock band of the moment or the Hollywood Vampires. The group, born in 2015, sees the participation of three great artists from the entertainment world: the Hollywood star Johnny Depp, the guitarist of Aerosmith Joe Perry and the controversial Alice Cooper. The name of the band was born to honor an exclusive club named after the same name that was founded by Cooper in the seventies. A huge event therefore, considering that the Hollywood Vampires have announced only two dates for the concert, one a Lucca and one in Rome. On stage the group will perform live to present the songs of their debut album (including the single Bad as i am) and sing also great classics such as Whole fight love, My generation, School's out and Another brick in the wall.
The concert of the Hollywood Vampires will leave everyone speechless according to the words of the members of the group, because it will be an energetic mix of rock that will involve the public and will have fun. The Hollywood Vampires have also released a brand new and exciting album during the first months of 2018. Already in 2016 the band had performed in concert in many cities around the world, including the Italian Verona, passing through New York and Bucharest for a total of twenty-three cities and seven nations. At the beginning, however, the group performed only before a small and illustrious audience that frequented the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. From that moment on, however, given the great success, the Hollywood Vampires decided to go further and try to play in other cities of the world. An unrepeatable event therefore, not to be missed, to enjoy the best of live rock music in one of the most anticipated concerts of the Lucca Summer Festival 2018.

Here is the set schedule for his "d'amore d'autore" Tour, I remind you that the lineup will be updated as new information arrives.
A world of love
We must live
My story with you
Until the end of the world
If I lose you too
Thank you because
Love changes our lives
Before everything ends
My beloved enemy
Smoke in the eyes
But who cares
I think about you and the world changes
I am a train
Only together we will be happy
If I did not have you anymore
Every life is great
Hold my hands
Tell me now who you are
This life will change
At the bar, one dies
The world will change
There was a guy like me who loved the Beatles and the Rolling Stones
I went to 100 an hour
If you can go out on a single Sunday with me
Get sent by mom
The rain falls
You can give more
I am not worthy of you
One in a thousand
Kneeling by you
Bananas and raspberry
Only together we will be happy
