Johnny Depp to perform concerts with Alice Cooper, Joe Perry

Johnny Depp is set to perform live with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry as the musical group Hollywood Vampires.

The band on Wednesday announced shows scheduled for Sept. 16 and 17 at The Roxy in West Hollywood, California. Tickets go on sale Friday.

The trio is based off Cooper's 1970s drinking club, the Hollywood Vampires, which included John Lennon, Harry Nilsson and Micky Dolenz.

The group will release a self-titled album Sept. 11 that includes collaborations with Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, Slash, Brian Johnson and others. Depp plays guitar throughout the album and sings background on some of the tracks.

Proceeds from the album will benefit MusiCares, which provides financial and personal assistance to musicians.

Hollywood Vampires also will perform at Brazil's Rock in Rio on Sept. 24.

Depp, meanwhile, has been busy filming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" in Australia. He recently showed up at a children's hospital dressed up as his character, Captain Jack Sparrow.
