UPDATES!!!

The
Hollywood Vampires announced on their official pages,

along with Joe Perry and Alice Cooper’s pages as well, that due to logistical difficulties of transporting their personal equipment
through Europe, the upcoming show in
Milan previously set to happen in September 10 was moved to September 9,

still on the same place and hour.

Also, although still not confirmed, a new show will probably be added on their European Tour. The show #18 is planned to happen in September
13
 at the Life Park in Istanbul,
Turkey.
This will be their first show in the country.
Let’s stay tuned.

Hollywood Vampires – I Want My Now (Official

“Hollywood Vampires 2020 Tour”, was also released the third official live

Berlin, Germany.

* CURIOSITIES:

> From the new album “Rise” (released
last June 21) this was the first song to be played live in May 17, 2018 at
Turning Stone Resort Casino, Verona, New York during the 2018 Tour.

> This is the third version of
the song.
This is the shorter version of the song known. Although the video runs for 3
minutes and 40 seconds, the song only really starts 15 seconds later after the
conversation between the members during a flight, and ends 15 earlier too. You
can also hear in the beginning that the interlude “How the Glass
Fell” is playing. With few edits in the beginning and end, an “Album Edit” or “Radio
Edit” can be created and sent to radio stations to be played, due to most radios
prefer to play shorter versions.
The “Live Version” is a little bit longer and played during the tour or TV
performances. The song it’s the first to be played after the mash-up intro of “Bela
Lugosi’s Dead” + “The Last Vampire” and runs between 4 minutes and 40 seconds and 5 minutes.
The Album Version, included on the album “Rise”, is the longest track of the
album and their career. Although ending around 5 minutes, it keeps running for 7 minutes and 13
seconds. Alice Cooper was probably talking about this song in an interview for the “Ultimate Classic Rock”, last April 25, 2019: “..and if that means that the B section goes
too long, good, let it go too long. Normally, I would cut that in half, but I
said, ‘No, no, let’s let it go long.’ If I think that doesn’t make sense right
there, I kind of go: ‘Yeah, but that’s the personality of this song.”

>

Joe Perry also talked about the meaning of the song during an interview for the “Loudwire”, last

June 6, 2019: “It’s a commentary on the state of things. There’s that sense of people wanting things now. They don’t want it later, they don’t want it tomorrow, they want it now…That’s what’s driving it.”

>  For being partially written by Johnny and confirmed by Cooper that he is singing Johnny’s venom on the album, the first part can also be a hidden message about the actual hell he has been living.

OFFICIAL LYRICS:

(One, two, three, four!)

Dark inside the pain
Lost in the mundane
A lie for which I’m blamed
A hostage no one claims 

The fugitive’s way, I won’t obey
Your bullets just ricochet 

I’m going in madness; I’m going in
madness (2x)
I say… 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now!… 

I want my now… 

I live wherever I want
Too much time to think
Fire in the brain
Twisted and insane 

To runaway there’s just no way
Your bullets still ricochet 

I’m going in madness; I’m going in
madness (2x)
You’ll pay… 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now…

I want my now… 

I want a house, I want a car
I wanna be a movie star
I want some gold, I wanna a brick
I want a diamond selfie stick (Yeah)
I want a jet, I want to fly
I never wanna answer why
I want a crown, I want to reign
Wanna be a royal pain…

And I want it… NOW! 

I want my now, now, now 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now… 

Now, now, now…
