Zakk Wylde and Mike Portnoy Lead Tony MacAlpine Benefit Lineup

(Prog) Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai and Mike Portnoy are among a host of stars lined up to perform at a benefit concert for Tony MacAlpine, who was recently diagnosed with colon cancer.

The guitarist, 55, postponed tours of Asia and Australia after the cancer was discovered and he later had to pull out of a European trek too. Wylde, Vai and Portnoy will be joined by John 5, Billy Sheehan and Derek Sherinian for the gig, which takes place at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles on December 12.

An auction will be held at the event, with guitars donated by Vai, John 5, Paul Gilbert, Joe Bonamassa, Steve Lukather, Steve Stevens and Joe Satriani up for grabs. Read more here.
