Alice Cooper: Rocks ´The Tonight Show With Jay Leno`!

Alice Cooper performed "I'll Bite Your Face Off", the first single from his new album, "Welcome 2 My Nightmare", on Friday, September 9th edition of "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on NBC. You can now watch video footage of his appearance below.

Alice Cooper announced last month that eminent guitar prodigy Orianthi was joining his band, replacing departing guitarist Damon Johnson, for the next leg of his 2011 "No More Mr. Nice Guy" world tour starting September 22nd in Auckland, New Zealand. Currently in progress, the tour hits ninety plus cities, covering five continents, including Europe and North America twice over.

At the young age of 26, Orianthi has already experienced what most aspiring musicians only dream of. She's opened for her hero, Steve Vai; backed Carrie Underwood; traded solos with Carlos Santana; shared the stage with Michael Jackson and accompanied Alice during his live performance of "School's Out" on the 2010 season finale of"American Idol".

"It's very difficult to find someone to match the talents of Damon Johnson," commented Cooper, "but not only did we find someone who is more than up to the challenge…she also looks WAY better."

Orianthi joins world-renowned guitarist Steve Hunter (toured and recorded with Cooper and Lou Reed) and Tommy Henriksen (co-wrote and played on Cooper's upcoming release); drummer Glen Sobel andAlice's longtime bassist Chuck Garric round out the band.

"I'm super-excited to go on tour with Alice," said Orianthi. "It's a huge honor to be able to get on stage and jam with an icon."
