The Metal All Stars was formed by Gabe Reed Productions as a way to give the world's metal fans an opportunity to see metal legends in one blockbuster show. As Gabe Reed commented "As a metal fan, this is the show that I always wanted to see â€“ 2 plus hours of legendary metal!" Gabe Reed Productions is a global production and touring company, that has, in addition to the Metal All Stars, organized international stadium shows/tours for powerhouse artists including KISS, Motley Crue, Guns N' Roses, and Rock N Roll All Stars that featured Gene Simmons of KISS, along with members of Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, Deep Purple, Alice in Chains and more, and was featured on the season finale of the highly successful television show "Gene Simmons Family Jewels."
The participating artists are looking forward to the Metal All Stars next tour as much as the fans are. As Zakk Wylde stated, "The Metal All Stars are back and we are going to kick some major ass!" Additionally, James LaBrie, "I am psyched to be a part of the Metal All Stars tour with an incredible collection of singers and musicians. Come on out and let's make it a memorable kick ass evening that is going to rock!"
It's not often that such a stellar cast is assembled for one tour, and sharing one stage. Soon, lucky European headbangers will get a chance to get a mega-dose of metal on a single night, with the upcoming 2014 Metal All Stars tour.
