Grammy Award-winning American rock guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Slash, returns to New Zealand in January with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators in tow on the “Living The Dream Tour”. Scheduled to perform two New Zealand shows, the tour will support the release of Slash’s fourth solo album Living The Dream, released on Slash’s own label Snakepit Records in partnership with Sony Music New Zealand.
In 2016, Guns N’ Roses re-united and Slash joined Axl Rose and Duff McKagan for the ongoing “Not In This Lifetime Tour” which Billboard now ranks as the fourth-highest grossing tour of all time. Ecstatic audiences in Wellington and Auckland witnessed one of New Zealand’s biggest stadium tours of the millennium….”Slash, of course, killed it” reported the New Zealand Herald.
Now TEG Dainty are thrilled to welcome Slash ft Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators back to New Zealand for what are sure to be two of the most memorable rock shows of the year. Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG DAINTY said “Great to have Slash back and bringing his incredible live show to New Zealand.”
On touring the world again with The Conspirators, featuring singer Myles Kennedy, bassist Todd Kerns, drummer Brent Fitz and rhythm guitarist Frank Sidoris. Slash reveals "I always planned on getting back together with The Conspirators as soon as possible and continuing on with what we started. As much as enjoy the writing and recording process, when I'm creating music it's always with the intent that it should be played in front of an audience... That's what I love the most," Slash enthuses.
And truer words were never spoken: it's in performance mode that Slash truly shines. He deals nonstop, electrifying riffs and guitar solos that exhilarate even those seated way back in the nosebleed section. This living legend's unparalleled command of his instrument and alluring stage presence ensure fans return, tour after tour, to admire the way Slash makes his axe sing. There's not another guitarist on the planet that even comes close to rivalling Slash's instinctive, Sunset Strip-honed feel and effortless showmanship. And let's face it, no one else can rock a top hat quite like Slash does!
New Zealand’s obsession with Slash, in any guise, is steadfast - we can't get enough of him. A new story started with his first solo album Slash (2010), which debuted at #1 on the Official NZ Album chart and is certified Platinum. As Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, he released the critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love (2012), followed by World On Fire (2014) and now the latest album Living The Dream.
Slash has amassed album sales of over 100 million copies and was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 . "Making records and touring and getting up on stage every day and playing music with these guys, that is the essence of living the dream” says Slash.
One of New Zealand’s most dominant live acts, Devilskin, have spent the last few months playing across 14 European countries on a sold-out tour with Halestorm, as well as headlining their own 10 date UK tour. It’s been a crazy two years since Devilskin played with Disturbed at Spark Arena in November to a full-house of 11,000 people on the release of their second album, which like their first, entered the NZ album chart at #1.
Devilskin return to NZ for these prestigious arena support shows having converted a legion of new fans and hard-rocking friends all over Europe and the British Isles.
Known for their blistering and intense live shows, watch Devilskin perform their stunning, explosive sets with Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators in January/February 2019.
The NZ connection is strong – this will be the bands third tour of the country’s largest arenas and their first date with a Tauranga audience! Make sure you become part of the latest chapter in this band's story when Slash Ft Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators grace a stage near you.
