Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss has revealed she has left the band after their final European show of the summer, which took place at Törebodafestivalen in Toreboda, Sweden on July 9.
In a post on instagram, she added that her solo summer festival dates have also been canceled, but stresses that there is “no drama”. No further details were provided on the decision to leave or his future plans.
The statement read: “After this absolutely incredible run in Europe, it is bittersweet for me to let you know that I will not be joining the Alice Cooper Band for the upcoming fall tour. I will also have to cancel the dates. of the festival my solo band had planned for the rest of the year.
“I’m not pregnant! There’s no drama and my year of touring is still busy – in fact, I’m on a direct flight to the next adventure as I post this, and I’ll be on scene much sooner than you think! But that’s news for another day.
“The last eight years together have been the experience of a lifetime, and I couldn’t be more grateful to Alice and Sheryl Cooper, Shep Gordon, the amazing band, crew and fans for welcoming me into your whole nightmare. I don’t know what the future holds after this, but I’m forever grateful.”
Strauss – who was previously a member of the Iron Maidens, Femme Fatale and the Kiss-owned LA Kiss in-house band – replaced Alice Cooper guitarist Orianthi in 2014 and toured with the Steve Carell lookalike until this month.
