Nita Strauss To Rejoin Alice Cooper For 2023 Touring


Guitarist Nita Strauss will be back onstage with Alice Cooper this year. She had previously stepped down from the group last summer to serve as Demo Lovato‘s touring guitarist. Strauss was eventually sidelined by a torn meniscus and the resulting knee surgery this past December. Her recovery has gone well, as last month saw her complete her required physical therapy.

She’ll be back to sharing the stage with Cooper starting this April. Speaking of her return, the aforementioned 75-year-old shock rock icon commented:

“She’s Back! 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 added:

“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!”
