In conjunction with his top-selling sophomore solo album Apocalyptic Love, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators will be headlining a fall North American tour which kicks off September 4 and runs through October 3.

The tour starts in San Diego and ends in Los Angeles, California and will be offering an amazing opportunity to 20 unsigned bands, according to the article:

20 bands will be hand-selected to be Slash's opening acts and will perform on the fall touring the cities closest to their hometown. At the end of the fall run, one of the opening bands will be named by Slash as the grand prize winner of Guitar Center On-Stage. Not only will the bands be opening for one of the world's greatest guitarists, but they will also receive a tour support prize pack that includes gear from Ernie Ball, Zoom, Dunlop, Monster Cable, Pro-Mark, and Converse. The top performing band on the tour, as selected by Slash, will be named the grand prize winner and take home $10,000 in guitars from Gibson and Epiphone, plus a $5,000 shopping spree at Guitar Center and more. The 20 bands will be announced in August.
