Throughout the night guitarists came on for their own separate pieces and other times, all musicians would be on the stage together playing synchronized or soloing. For one song, Zakk Wylde made his way in to the crowd while playing and got all the way up to the balcony at one point! Wylde is a guitarist known for his wild on stage interactions and blistering solos from his time spent with Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne. The show ended with all guitarists on stage together playing  Queen’s beloved “Bohemian Rhapsody” which had the crowd singing along to the tune. If this super group is coming to your town, I highly recommend you to go and see the show. It is not everyday you get to see the best guitarist’s of all time on stage together like this.  See below for the rest of their tour dates along with a full photo gallery:
