In 2016, three time Grammy winning guitarist Steve Vai brought together some of metal's finest guitarists for the supergroup Generation Axe. With several sold out performances all over North America and Asia, they're making their return to the region later this year.

Revealed today, their 32 date trek begins on Nov. 7, and it will feature performances inside Anaheim's City National Grove on Nov. 8, Denver's Paramount Theatre on Nov. 13, and The National in Richmond on Dec. 5. Tosin Abasi, Nuno Bettencourt, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde, Pete Griffin, Nick Marinovich, and JP Bouvet will rejoin Vai for the 2018 installment of Generation Axe.

What exactly can fans expect from this show? The eight piece group will perform hits from their respective bands and iconic acts. Their previous treks found them performing classics such as Extreme's "Get the Funk Out," Boston's "Foreplay," and Deep Purple's "Highway Star."

Their entire tour routing can be seen below. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday (July 13) at 10 a.m. local time, but presale tickets go live this Wednesday (July 11) at 10 a.m. local time. VIP packages will also be available for those looking to get a bigger experience.
