Slash has teamed up with Guitar Center for the latest On Stage program where they will be giving twenty unsigned bands the chance to open for Slash on his upcoming tour. They put out these details:

In the fourth installment of Guitar Center On-Stage, twenty bands hand selected as Slash's opening acts will perform at stops on the tour closest to their hometown.

At the closing of the tour, one of the opening bands will be named by Slash as the grand prize winner of Guitar Center On-Stage.

Not only will the twenty selected bands be opening for one of the worlds greatest guitarists, but they will also be receiving a tour support prize pack that includes gear from Ernie Ball, Zoom, Dunlop, Monster Cable, Pro-Mark, and Converse. The top performing band on the tour, as selected by Slash, will be named the grand prize winner and take home $10,000 in guitars from Gibson and Epiphone, a $5,000 shopping spree at Guitar Center and much more.

How to Enter: Starting today through June 30, 2012, unsigned bands across the United States are invited to submit their unique music track at www.GCOnstage.com. The twenty bands handpicked by Slash will be announced in August.

$10k in guitars from Gibson and Epiphone

"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."
