If you need to touch them after playing the amp for a while wear some gloves or something.
Keeping it real since '92
The filaments in the tubes get well over 100 degrees Celsius when at full heat.

I can place my hand on the top of the head cabinet and its usually pretty warm.

What tubes are you using?? I've suffered several burns from accidentally touching tubes after I had just finished playing.
