Generation Axe Tour 2018 to Feature Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt, and Tosin Abasi

0

I guess 2016’s inaugural Generation Axe Tour was a success — ’cause the trek will return this fall, with the same exact line-up as the first one: Steve Vai (David Lee Roth), Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne),  Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders), Yngwie Malmsteen (the fucking fury), and Nuno Bettencourt (Rihanna). The more I think about it, the more that seems like a weird gathering of insanely talented musicians (What the fuck do you think Tosin and Yngwie talk about? The pros and cons of being fashionable versus not changing a single item of your wardrobe for thirty years?). But weird isn’t bad. In fact, I honestly wouldn’t be opposed to going even weirder with it. Maybe if they ever do a third one of these they can try and get Kevin Hufnagel or Mick Barr on board, just to really drive it home.
