Yngwie Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth, Bumblefoot, Gary Hoey Joining Forces for 'Guitar Gods' Tour
Guitar virtuosos Yngwie Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and Gary Hoey are teaming up for a major North American tour this summer.

Titled Guitar Gods, the trek will take place in June and July, and is an obvious must-see for every guitar aficionado out there.

"Fans can expect the unexpected," tour headliner Yngwie said. "I raise the bar with every performance I do and this tour will be no different."

As the press release reads, "2013 was a banner year for Malmsteen, as he released his autobiography 'Relentless,' which coincided with a wildly successful tour that played to houses all over the world. The only way he could top that in 2014 was to hand pick an all-star lineup of Guitar Gods to share the stage with him on a magical full North American tour."

According to a Blabbermouth report, Bumblefoot confirmed some of the dates via Facebook. Check them out below.
