Guitarist Nita Strauss has announced she's leaving Alice Cooper's band and has unfortunately had to cancel all her solo dates for the rest of 2022. Strauss assures everyone that she'll be back on stage sooner than you might think and that there's no drama between her and Cooper. As for what the future holds for her, all Strauss stated was "that's news for another day." Here's hoping everything is alright.

"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."

Strauss joined Alice Cooper's band in 2014 and, last we heard, was a part of Cooper's new album. We wish Strauss all the best in her future endeavors, and hope to see some good news soon! You can also catch Alice Cooper at one of the dates below, though no new guitarist has yet been announced.
