It's time for Styx, Foreigner and former Eagles guitarist Don Felder to say "domo arigato" to your town. Today (Feb. 4), the four rock music giants announced a co-headlining tour for this summer. According to Billboard, The Soundtrack of Summer Tour will be a renewal of Styx and Foreigner's 2010 trek together.

The extensive tour, which thus far has 35 days and is expected to expand, will kick off on May 16 in Oklahoma City. Fedler is set to open each of the shows, playing many old Eagles tunes, while Styx and Foreigner will trade off playing third on each tour date.

"The two bands, although different, seem to complement each other. The audience enjoys both, I think, and with the addition of Don Felder, that's kind of an interesting evening's worth of music," Foreigner's Mick Jones told Billboard, emphasizing the groups' friendship.

Though they've toured together before, this time has the addition of a new take on a signature rock hit. Fedler, Styx and Foreigner have re-recorded the Eagles' signature 1977 single "Hotel California" for the tour, with newly sung verses and plenty of guitar solos. In the interview, Fedler hinted that "Hotel California" could very easily close out the shows on the Soundtrack of Summer Tour.
