Matt Sorum and promoter Gabe Reed are behind the concept for the tour and put it all together. “We thought it would be a really great idea to put together a band of some of our favorite musicians from the history of rock,” Reed said. “I think it’s going to be exciting to go see the hits of Kiss, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Billy Idol, the Cult and Alice In Chains. That’s where the vibe came from.”
