Nita Strauss is returning to Alice Cooper‘s band for his 2023 tour, Cooper’s management has disclosed.
The Alice Cooper North American tour, with an all-new show dubbed “Too Close For Comfort,” kicks off in late April in Michigan and continues through late September.
The trek includes a handful of August stadium shows with Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe, followed by a co-headlining late summer “Freaks On Parade” tour with Rob Zombie.
“She’s Back!” Cooper said. “Nita asked for a leave of absence to work with someone else, something I always encourage my band members to do. I like them to challenge themselves and try new things. I’m thankful to my old friend Kane Roberts for stepping up and filling in for her, but she’ll be back with us for the new tour that starts up in late April. It’s going to be great to have her back.”
Strauss commented, “From the studio to the stage, it’s always an immense honor to make music with Alice Cooper!! I’m very excited to be rejoining the band on the road for the 2023 dates, and so I’ll see you on the road in April. Let the nightmare return!”
The top-rated guitarist had been with Cooper for several years until she departed to do a Fall 2022 tour with Demi Lovato.
