Slash Live Dates

May 2010 saw rock icon Slash release his debut solo album “Slash” on Roadrunner Records. The album features an all-star roster of guest musicians including Ian Astbury, Chris Cornell, Rocco DeLuca, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Myles Kennedy, Kid Rock, Lemmy Kilmister, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Duff McKagan, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, and Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother. Slash, enlisted the services of producing partner Eric Valentine (Queens of Stone Age, The All-American Rejects) and compiled a rhythm section of bassist Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) and drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails). Slash handled the majority of arranging and songwriting duties and hand-picked each guest artist. The album was released to widespread critical acclaim and has already sold over 100,000 copies in the UK alone…
 
Roadrunner are set to release “Starlight” as a single on the 25th July 2011. The single features a stunning vocal performance from Myles Kennedy (who also performs vocal duties in Slash’s touring band). Early 2011 also saw Roadrunner release a deluxe edition of the Slash album in a 1 cd/1 dvd format. The CD will feature the full album plus exclusive acoustic versions of “Back To Cali” (Slash), “Fall To Pieces” (original by Velvet Revolver) and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” (originally GnR) all featuring Myles Kennedy on vocals. The DVD features a “Making Of The Album” documentary, track by track with Slash, in addition to a selection of live and promo videos.
