The Metal All Stars was put together by Kendra Helms Media and 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 – 2 plus hours of legendary metal!” Gabe Reed Productions is a global production and touring company, that has organized international stadium shows/tours for powerhouse artists including KISS, Mötley Crüe, 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.’
And the participating artists seem to be looking forward to the Metal All Stars tour as much as the fans are. As Joey Belladonna has stated, “I can’t wait to rock Europe with all of these metal legends! It’s going to be insane and a once in a lifetime opportunity for the fans!” Additionally, Brian Fair pointed out, “Tons of great artists, great singers, musicians – it’s going to be a killer time and a killer party. Some one-of-a-kind events, see you soon!”
