One of the worlds biggest rockstars, Slash, is returning to Manchester on Friday 28 November to perform at the Phones 4u Arena alongside bandmates Myles Kennedy (vocals) and The Conspirators (Brent Fitz on drums and Todd Kerns on bass)as a part of their European tour in support of upcoming album World On Fire (you can watch them talking about the recording of the album below).
The UK arm of the tour will also see them taking in Leeds (29 November), Birmingham (1 December), London (2 December) and Glasgow (4 December).
World On Fire will be released on 15 September via Slash’s own label Dik Hayd International and will feature 17 new tracks and is the follow up to 2012’s critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love which entered the US Billboard Top 200 chart at number four and spawned two number 1 US rock radio hits for Slash.
Success is nothing new for one of the world’s leading axe men, with over 100 million album sales, a Grammy Award and seven Grammy nominations with Guns N Roses, Slash’s Snakepit and Velvet Revolver. His ability and charisma have lead to his induction into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame and his being named number 2 on the All-Time Best Electric Guitar Players List according to Time magazine (behind only the legend Jimi Hendrix).
