Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Def Leppard Alumni + More Team Up for ‘Titans of Rock’
Have you ever dreamed of seeing Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Def Leppard, and Motley Crue on the same bill? Well, this year you can! Sort of. As long as you’re cool with only seeing individual members of the bands — and you live in South America.
Dubbed the ‘Titans of Rock’ tour, the all-star event will feature contributions from a wide array of hard rock legends, including Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach, Motley Crue’s Vince Neil, ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, Deep Purple‘s Glenn Hughes, GNR stars Duff McKagan, Gilby Clarke, and Matt Sorum, guitarist extraordinaire Steve Stevens, and Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott. (Also: Ed Roland of Collective Soul. We’re just saying.)
Stevens confirmed the news via his Facebook page, where he also listed the tour dates. Check out the full list, and make your travel plans accordingly:

Not unlike such classic rock-minded package tours as the Voices of Classic Rock or Rock and Pop Masters, the Titans of Rock tour seems like a great way to get plenty of bang for your buck (or peso) with live hits by the artists who originally performed them. What do you think — should the Titans bring their act to North America? What would you pay to see this lineup at a theater near you?
