Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum, Gene Simmons At 'Rock 'N' Roll Allstars' Press Conference

Comprised of musicians from some of the biggest bands in recent rock history, the Rock 'N' Roll Allstars is a live show unlike any before. Bandmembers include:

* Gene Simmons (Kiss)
* Joe Elliott (Def Leppard)
* Matt Sorum (Velvet Revolver, Guns N' Roses)
* Duff McKagan (Velvet Revolver, Guns N' Roses)
* Gilby Clarke (Guns N' Roses, Rockstar Supernova)
* Glenn Hughes (Black Country Communion, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath)
* Ed Roland (Collective Soul)
* Sebastian Bach (Skid Row)
* Steve Stevens (Billy Idol)
* Mike Inez (Alice In Chains)
* Billy Duffy (The Cult)

Promoter Gabe Reed hosted a press conference this past Thursday (March 1) at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, California to officially announce the Rock 'N' Roll Allstars tour of South and Central America in April/May 2012. Also attending the press conference were Simmons, Sorum, McKagan, Clarke, Bach and Hughes, among others.

Commented Bach: "For me to be the singer in Gene Simmons' first-EVER side project is amazing to me! Dreams come true, indeed. If you would have told me when I was a boy that some day Gene Simmons, Glenn Hughes and myself would be in a band together, my reply would have been, No, we will not,' and I would have been wrong, haha!! See you soon Central and South America!! We are gonna rock the best of Kiss, Deep Purple, Guns N' Roses, Skid Row and Def Leppard! See you soon on tour!!!"

Despite the fact that he was previously announced as one of the musicians taking part in the Rock 'N' Roll Allstars tour, former Metallica and Voivod bassist Jason Newsted will **NOT** be making an appearance at the event.

Blabbermouth, April 24, 2012:

'Rock 'N' Roll Allstars': All Concerts Except Lima Canceled

Rock 'N' Roll Allstars, an 11-piece supergroup comprised of Gene Simmons of KISS, three former members of Guns N' Roses, Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and many other big names in rock history, has released the following statement:

"Rock 'N' Roll Allstars regret to inform our fans that the shows we had scheduled in Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala and Venezuela have been cancelled. An incredible effort was made to work with local promoters to bring our show to the fans but they made it impossible for us to do so. We are saddened that we will not be coming to Central America and will do everything possible to ensure that our fans receive refunds for all tickets purchased. We are in South America and just had amazing shows in Paraguay and Argentina where thousands of fans came to hear the hits of Guns N' Roses, KISS, Def Leppard and more. The show in Lima, Peru [on April 27 at Jockey Club] is still on sale and the band is still playing this show. Thank you for your support and we hope to see each and every one of you soon."

Rock 'N' Roll Allstars played a special club show this past Sunday night (April 22) at Teatro Vorterix in Buenos Aires, Argentina as part of its tour of South and Central America. The band blazed through an abbreviated ten-song set that featured the biggest hits from all the musicians involved, including Def Leppard's "Pure Some Sugar on Me", KISS' "Rock and Roll All Nite", Skid Row's "Youth Gone Wild", along with Guns N' Roses' "Welcome To The Jungle", with Sebastian Bach singing.

The setlist was as follows:

01. Welcome To The Jungle (Guns N' Roses cover)
02. Youth Gone Wild (Skid Row cover)
03. Highway Star (Deep Purple cover)
04. Wildflower (The Cult cover)
05. Rebel Yell (Billy Idol cover)
06. Shine (Collective Soul cover)
07. Tie Your Mother Down (Queen cover)
08. Pour Some Sugar On Me (Def Leppard cover)
09. I Love It Loud (KISS cover)
10. Rock And Roll All Nite (KISS cover)
