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.

    Nine dates? Does that really qualify as a "major" or "full" North American tour?
    Well, I can't find the edit button... but I hope they add a lot more dates in the future.
    15 year old me would have loved this, when all I cared about was constant wanking. Also guitar solos.
    How about you actually listen to Uli Jon Roth then say that?
    Jeez relax, just a little masturbation joke. I've loved these guys for years. Except Yngwie, I went off his music.
