"When you live the ultimate American guitar player's dream, with the ultimate grinding band, performing the most intense fun songs in the world to the most enthusiastic audiences alive, every tour and every concert is an indescribable celebration," Ted Nugent said in a press release. "Styx and REO deserve me. Here we come again baby, like dogs in heat!"

It's been several years since any of the bands on the bill have released new material. REO Speedwagon unveiled "Find Your Own Way Home" in 2007, the same year Nugent unleashed "Love Grenade." "Big Bang Theory," Styx's most recent studio effort, surfaced in 2005.
