Los Angeles born guitarist Nita Strauss has become a force to be reckoned with in the music world, dazzling audiences across the US, UK, Europe, South America, Asia and Africa, and sharing the stage with a diverse range of artists including legendary R&B star Jermaine Jackson, early MTV darlings Femme Fatale, video game supergroup Critical Hit and popular tribute band The Iron Maidens.
Her skill, exuberant stage presence and love for all things about her instrument have earned her a stellar reputation and endorsements from many top companies. Nita has been featured in many worldwide print ads and on dozens of albums, trailers, and soundtracks, most recently Heroes Of The Storm (Blizzard) and Grammy-nominated Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Konami/ Platinum Games), and is the author of the Premier Guitar column “Drop Dead Shred”. She was ranked first in the Guitar World article “10 Female Guitar Players You Should Know,” and has been featured in Revolver Magazine’s annual “Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock” issue and calendar for the last two years. In 2014 Nita became the official in-house guitarist for the LA KISS, the arena football team owned by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS.
In June 2014, Nita replaced Orianthi in Alice Cooper’s touring band and has never looked back. She has become one of the most sought after clinicians in the industry and has done extensive clinic tours across multiple continents. Her consistent touring schedule has shown her to play in front of over a million audience members per year consistently for the past several years.
In 2017 Nita launched her original band, We Start Wars, and classic metal cover band The Starbreakers. Besides touring with Alice Cooper, she released her debut solo album, Controlled Chaos, on November 16, 2018, to rave reviews.
Opening the show is the Boston-based band Flight of Fire. Comprised of a wild, charismatic singer, identical twin sisters and a woman whose rhythmic talent intimidates, this multiple award-winning band known for over-the-top stage antics performs energetic hard rock delivered by four fierce females.
