Nita Strauss announced earlier this week she left Alice Cooper's band and has unfortunately had to cancel all her solo dates for the rest of 2022. No initial word was available on what happened, but rumors began to swirl that Strauss had joined Demi Lovato's touring band. Turns out those rumors were true, as Strauss has now confirmed on her Instagram account. "Let's rock, @ddlovato! ???? Excited to dive into this show and have some fun ?" said Strauss in a brief post.
The original news of Strauss joining Lovato's touring band broke earlier this morning when Strauss was spotted playing with Lovato on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, though no confirmation was available at that time. We wish Strauss all the best with her new gig!
Strauss's previous statement upon leaving Cooper's band is as follows. "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."
