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.
