Three classic rock headliners—Foreigner, Whitesnake and Jason Bonhams Led Zeppelin Evening—have announced a joint 2018 29-city summer trek called “Juke Box Heroes Tour,” produced by Live Nation.

The bands will cross the U.S. starting June 15 in Bangor, Maine at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion. All three bands are led by Englishmen: Mick Jones, David Coverdale and Jason Bonham. Foreigner’s 40th Anniversary tour was one of last summer’s best selling runs.

Tickets for the “Juke Box Heroes Tour” go on sale to the general public beginning Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. local time here.

Throughout this tour, Foreigner will continue their long-standing partnership with the Grammy Museum, by which local school choirs are invited to join the band onstage in almost every market they play. Through this program over the past several years, the band has raised well into the six figures for music in school programs, and given thousands of students a life-changing experience to rock on stage with one of the most well known bands of all time.

Entitled 40, the album is a comprehensive compilation of original hits and several tracks from the current lineup, with Kelly Hansen on vocals. All tracks were recorded between 1977 and 2017. The current line-up is Mick Jones (lead guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, saxophone, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar), and Chris Frazier (drums).
