If you’re one of the lucky few in attendance at Monday (May 7) night’s Dark Shadows premiere party in Los Angeles, you got to see a one-of-a-kind performance. Three rock legends and one rock star actor teamed up to play some rock classics for a VIP audience, according to a post on Alice Cooper’s website.
Alice Cooper (who has a small role in Dark Shadows) and pals served as the house band for the party, joined by Dark Shadows star Johnny Depp on his TV Yellow Les Paul Special. Before long the gang was playing Cooper’s biggest hits, with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry joining in on his Gibson Les Paul. As if that wasn’t enough star power, Perry’s pal Steven Tyler hit the stage to lead the whole group through “Come Together” and “Whole Lotta Love.” Check out fan-shot footage of the band playing the Led Zeppelin classic below.
It’s not the first time Cooper and Depp have shared a stage. The actor joined Alice last summer at London’s 100 Club. In addition, Depp loaned his guitar skills to Marilyn Manson for a performance at this year’s Golden Gods Awards.
Dark Shadows, directed by Tim Burton, hits theaters on Friday, May 11.
