It kind of did. Got my ticket a few days ago, so it was mentioned [url=http://metalsetlists.com/showpost.php?p=450778&postcount=625]on Tuesday[/url] in the Upcoming Shows thread ;)
This just keeps getting better. Glenn Hughes and Ripper Owens added :D
Confirmed line-up so far:
Tim "Ripper" Owens
Only a few weeks until this show.
Amazingly it looks like Nicko McBrain has dropped out. But newly added:
Still think the whole thing needs more singers at the moment...

Yeah, no idea why the deal went south, the JSX is a hell of an amp. Both times I've seen him with Chickenfoot he was playing JVMs.
