Hollywood Vampires bandmate Tommy Henriksen has also been confirmed along with members of Mother's Finest and Thunder.
They will be backed by The Mat Sinner Band and the Rock Meets Classic Symphony Orchestra. Mat Sinner - bassist for Primal Fear - has checked in with the following update:
"Over 20 million albums sold, over 5,000 shows played, and inducted into the Rock’n Roll Hall Of Fame in 2016. I‘m super excited of today's Rock Meets Classic announcement and another dream come true to rock with another hero of my youth! What a sensation to stand beside Robin Zander, The Man Of A Thousand Voices, and rip these classic Cheap Trick tunes on the RMC Tour 2020!"
