There’s really not much to say when you’re voted the second-best electric guitar player of all time, second only to Jimi Hendrix, or one of the one hundred greatest guitarists OF ALL TIME; when your work has defined an entire generation of hard rock/metal and still continues to move and inspire a generation of musicians and songwriters; when – through the decades – you are sought-after by the biggest names across numerous genres who want to collaborate and share the stage with you.
Yep – there is only one Slash. His chops and ability to create some of the most-memorable guitar moments of the 20th and 21st century is as easily recognizable as his image: signature top hat and Gibson Les Paul included. And serious rock fans – especially Filipino rock fans – who have admired and worshipped his work will lose their minds with the news that Slash and Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators will be returning to Manila via Peace Integrated Marketing, Sin Ye Long and Jasper Production. The show will be produced by PULP LIVE WORLD (in partnership with Dragon Art Entertainment, The Rock Promotions, and Peace Integrated Marketing) who notably was the first to bring in Slash way back in May 2013.
The show – which is part of the The River Is Rising Tour 2024 – will take place on March 12, 2024 at the New Frontier Theater in Cubao, Quezon City. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 1, 2023 and will be made available through Ticketnet Outlets nationwide and online through ticketnet.ph.
An original member of the phenomenal late 80s hard rock group Guns N’ Roses, Slash (born Saul Hudson) has played, collaborated and toured with the likes of Michael Jackson, Lenny Kravitz, Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Rihanna, Carole King, Bob Dylan and Paul Rodgers to name a very distinct few. After the worldwide success of Guns N’ Roses, Slash formed a side project Slash’s Snakepit which also found critical success, but by 2002, made waves with his new group Velvet Revolver, which featured former bandmates Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and the last, great Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots.
By 2009, Slash finally released his self-titled solo debut which featured a veritable who’s-who of popular music: Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Dave Grohl, Chris Cornell, Iggy Pop and Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. Though it was his music, he wasn’t alone and was actually in good company, as it morphed years later into an excellent working relationship with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators which he has released a total of four critically acclaimed full-length albums with, namely 2012’s Apocalyptic Love, 2014’s World on Fire, 2018’s Living The Dream and last year’s straightforwardly monikered 4.
Of course, when the news was first announced via social media that Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators were returning to Manila, an almost-immediate frenzy among Filipino music fans broke-out online. Having since rejoined Guns N’ Roses and playing venues worldwide for the past few years, Slash has since reclaimed his throne as the greatest, and most important guitarists of all time. So fans can definitely expect another explosive, high-voltage true-to-the-bone hard rock show next year, so save the date and buy your tickets now!
