"I'm a strong believer that the best way to get your music heard is to get out there and play shows," said Slash. "There are tons of talented bands that simply don't have the resources to go on tour, so I'm stoked to be able to host them on my tour and at the same time introduce my fans to great, undiscovered artists."
The twenty chosen opening acts will each perform in one of the following markets:
Los Angeles, CA
Kansas City, MO
New York, NY
Oklahoma City, OK
San Francisco, CA
