Slash is looking forward to touring with Ozzy Osbourne in the New Year (11) - because he's convinced the two rockers will have "a blast" on the road together.
The Black Sabbath star will embark on the second leg of his North American tour in January (11) and he's asked the guitarist to join the trek as his opening act.
Slash has been friends with Osbourne for many years and admits he can't wait to team up with his pal for six weeks of shows.
He tells, "The thing I am looking forward to most is just working with Ozzy. I have done a lot of gigs with him and we see each other a lot here and there, but to just do a tour with Ozzy, I am looking forward it... I have no definitive expectations on this. I just know it will be a blast."
The joint trek begins on 16 January (11) in Omaha, Nebraska and concludes on 22 February (11) in Jacksonville, Florida.
