Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai & more hitting the road together on 2018 Generation Axe tour 

Zakk Wylde (Credit: Igor Vidyashev)Shredders unite! Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi of Animals as Leaders will join forces for the 2018 North American Generation Axe tour, which begins November 7 in Oakland, California.

The Generation Axe tour will see the five guitarists take the stage together to perform songs from their respective catalogs with the support of a backing band.

"The Generation Axe experience goes way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam," says Vai. "The idea was to create a seamless show with one backing band and five completely accomplished and astonishing guitarists that take to the stage in various configurations, performing some of their solo music and merging together as cohesive co-creators of lushly orchestrated guitar extravaganzas."
