Talk about an all-star lineup! Guitarist Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) confirmed via Facebook that he, along with many of his famous friends, will team up for what is being dubbed the Titans of Rock tour in South America.
Joining Stevens will be Gene Simmons (KISS), Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses), Ed Roland (Collective Soul), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver), Jason Newsted (Metallica), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Vince Neil (Motley Crue).
