The West Texas Jam is a celebration of metal bands from the 1980s at the San Angelo RiverStage on March 30 2019. It features the tribute band for Bon Jovi opening for a tribute band for Def Leppard and the headliner is AC/DC's remarkable tribute band, Back in Black from Dallas, Texas.

These aren't just any tribute bands. These are the best, carefully selected for the inaugural West Texas Jam.

Opening the show at 6 p.m. is Bon Jovi, performed by Blaze of Glory, an incredible, almost uncanny reproduction of a live Bon Jovi concert. In fact they are so true to the actual artist that they were selected to appear on AXS TV's nationwide live broadcast World's Greatest Tribute Bands They were selected over every other Bon Jovi tribute band in North America.

Blaze of Glory delivers all of the standard megahits that made Bon Jovi famous. They also incorporate the steady stream of current hits that keep Bon Jovi relevant to this day. Watch them live here:

More about Blaze of Glory at their website.

Def Leggend is next. This is the most authentic Def Leppard Tribute band in the world. They provide an experience of sight and sound unmatched by any other tribute to the famous English rock back that was formed in Sheffield I 1977.

Def Leggend is made up of veteran musicians in Dallas, Texas. Their members have a combined 100 years of playing experience and have previously played in very successful bands traveling extensively and performing at some of the most incredible venues and festivals in the country. Watch their video performing "Billy's Got a Gun" here:

The headliner is the tribute band for AC/DC that critics say is so good, you'd think they actually are AC/DC! They are so authentic, that their lead singer auditioned for the real AC/DC March 2016. Back in Black, also Dallas-based, stand above the other tributes to the infamous metal band because their show includes tribute performances of both Bon Scott and Brian Johnson, both lead singers of AC/DC.
