Grammy Award-winning rock superstar and legendary guitarist Slash returns to New Zealand in support of his newly released album 'Living The Dream'. Featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators as special guests, the tour is set to grace Kiwi stages in Tauranga and Auckland in January next year.
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.
Slash will be touring the world again with The Conspirators, featuring singer Myles Kennedy, bassist Todd Kerns, drummer Brent Fitz and rhythm guitarist Frank Sidoris. He 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 is in his performance mode as 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 he 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.
