Former ALICE COOPER guitarist Nita Strauss has officially joined the touring band of singer Demi Lovato.

Nita made her live debut with Demi last night (July 14) with a performance of Lovato‘s new single, “Substance” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. Footage from the performance is available below.

Earlier this week, Nita Strauss announced that she won’t be joining Alice Cooper for his upcoming tour this fall.

She wrote in a statement: “After this absolutely incredible run in Europe, it is bittersweet for me to let you guys know that I will not be joining the Alice Cooper band for the upcoming fall tour. I will also regretfully have to cancel the festival dates my solo band had planned for the rest of the year.

“I AM NOT PREGNANT!!! There is no drama whatsoever and my touring year is still VERY full – in fact, I’m on a flight straight into the next adventure as I post this, and I’ll be on stage again much sooner than you think! But that’s news for another day.

“The past eight years together has been the experience of a lifetime, and I could not be more grateful to Alice and Sheryl Cooper, Shep Gordon, the amazing band, crew and fans for welcoming me to all of your nightmare.

“I don’t know what the future will hold after this, but I am forever thankful.”
