Saturday night (December 8th), ALICE COOPER hosted his 12th Annual Christmas Pudding at Comerica Theater in Phoenix, AZ. Alice was joined this year by international film star and musician JOHNNY DEPP, Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row), Don Felder of THE EAGLES, L.A. GUNS and Orianthi.
According to a review by Ed Masley from Azcentral.com, Cooper took the stage to lead his touring band through spirited performances of ‘No More Mr. Nice Guy’ and ‘I’ll Bite Your Face Off’ to kick off his headlining set before telling the crowd he’d like to introduce them to another lead guitarist, “Johnny D. from Kentucky.”
But Depp wasn’t there yet. So Cooper threw in ‘Billion Dollar Babies’. Depp was ready to roll by the time they finished “Billion Dollar Babies.” So Cooper brought him out to join him on a tribute to the drinking buddies he’s lost along the way at the helm of a star-studded cover band. The band performed: ‘Break On Through’ by THE DOORS, ‘Revolution’ by THE BEATLES, the JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE classic ‘Foxy Lady’ and THE WHO’s ‘My Generation’, sent out by Cooper to “Mr. Keith Moon, the best drummer that ever lived.”
The grand finale featured an all-star jam on the seasonal ‘Run, Rudolph, Run’.
