Some days after the apotheosis of Alice Cooper and his band in Athens, Greece, Nita Strauss suddenly announces that she is leaving the Alice Cooper band and that all her solo live shows are cancelled! The 35-year old guitarist shared the following text at her Instagram page:
"After this absolutely incredible run in Europe, it is bittersweet for me to let you guys know that I will not be joining the Alice Cooper band for the upcoming fall tour. I will also regretfully have to cancel the festival dates my solo band had planned for the rest of the year. I AM NOT PREGNANT!!! There is no drama whatsoever and my touring year is still VERY full- in fact, I'm on a flight straight into the next adventure as I post this, and I'll be on stage again much sooner than you think! But that's news for another day. The past eight years together has been the experience of a lifetime, and I could not be more grateful to Alice and Sheryl Cooper, Shep Gordon, the amazing band, crew and fans for welcoming me to all of your nightmare. I don't know what the future will hold after this, but I am forever thankful".
Let's see which her next musical step will be, but also if she will be replaced in the band of Alice Cooper and by whom!
***It was a rumor and now it is official - Nita Strauss joined Demi Lovato's touring band. She already made her live debut with Lovato, at the late-night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". Alice Cooper replace Nita Strauss with guitarist Kane Roberts.
