October 8, 2023

Nita Strauss, the Los Angeles-based guitar shredder for the Alice Cooper band, will miss several shows on the legendary rocker's current tour after falling ill.

Earlier today (Sunday, October 8),Nita took to her social media to share the following message: "Hey everyone, I got lots of messages about my whereabouts after last night's Alice Cooper show and unfortunately I have some bad news to share. Sadly, I will have to miss the next few shows of the tour due to illness. I'm taking all the necessary things and will rejoin the tour the absolute second I'm well enough.

"Alice and the boys are out there kicking ass as always, so show them lots of love if you're going to a show this week!
