It has been announced that Orianthi will be playing with Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) on his forthcoming European solo shows (see below). As some of these dates clash with the Alice Cooper shows, now starting on June 28th in Michigan, it would appear that she won`t be able to play with Alice for, at least, the start of the Motley Crue tour.
This seems to be confirmed by a recent interview with Ori on the Polish Bon Jovi fanclub site where she says: "Well, now I’m gonna get back to L.A. for a while, and then I’m going back to Europe with Alice for a short run of shows . Then I’m gonna concentrate on recording the album and promoting it by touring with Richie. But if Alice calls me to join some of his shows and I’d be able to do that, I’m gonna join him, definitely. Alice is like a family, as is the rest of his band for me and I’d always be glad to join them."
As the Crue tour takes up most of 2014 this would suggest Orianthi will not be performing with Alice, barring guest appearances, for the foreseeable future. (Thanks to kstone for interview link).
