If you're the kind of person who used to tune in to the nearest '90s rock radio station and rip the knob off, then you're in luck. This is a good time to be a alt-rock lover.

Titans of that decade's bro-rock Bush and Stone Temple Pilots are coming to the Valley in September.

And now, fans of pop-punk and reggae-flavored rock 'n' roll that comes original should get ready to have their dreams come true. Because 311 and the Offspring are scheduled to perform in Phoenix this summer.

The bands are teaming up to co-headline the Never-Ending Summer Tour.

Kicking off on July 25 in California, the tour is set to hit 29 cities across North America. That includes a stop at Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix on Tuesday, July 31. Joining these behemoths of '90s radio rock will be Gym Class Heroes.

Both 311 and the Offspring have scored a plethora of hits over the years.

While the Offspring haven't released a new album since 2012's Days Gone By, they're still veteran road dogs who've been keeping their live music muscles in tip-top shape.

Their tourmates are also a formidable live act, as 311 have been honing their rap-rock chops and white-boy reggae skills with Caribbean cruises and blowout 311 Day concerts. When they aren't playing out shows, Nick Hexum and the 311 boys are dealing with elaborate "311 Truth Now" conspiracies that keep popping up around the band.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 13, at Live Nation. Ticket prices haven't been announced as of this writing.
