Australian audiences have previously seen the altar of Slash Ft Myles Kennedy & The Conspiratorslive – as part of Soundwave festival and also their own headline shows over the years. In 2017, 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.
Consequence of Sound observed in a recent gig review: “Nostalgia be damned, is a real band growing its own roots! And with each record and tour this band continues to show the world that there’s an audience ready and willing to accept new music, as long as it’s delivered honestly and consistently.”
For Living The Dream, Slash and his band re-teamed with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Iggy Pop, Incubus) on the powerful 12 song collection. Reflecting on the album, Slash says, “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. And that’s why I was always deadset on getting back together with this band and continuing to do this… The Conspirators story is not over yet.”
Slash has amassed album sales of over 100 million copies, garnered a GRAMMY Award and seven GRAMMY nominations and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Slash landed on the top of the charts with his first solo album, Slash (2010) which featured Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie, Myles Kennedy and more. The album debuted at #2 on the Australian ARIA chart and is certified as an ARIA Accredited Platinum album. Shortly after, he formed his current band Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators–which features Myles Kennedy (lead vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass/vocals) and Frank Sidoris (rhythm guitar)–who’ve been touring worldwide and making music for over four years.
Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators released the critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love (2012) which stormed the Australian ARIA Chart at #2 and certified as an ARIA Accredited Gold album, Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart debuting at #4 as the top rock album. Apocalyptic Love has the added distinction of spawning Slash’s first-ever #1 rock radio solo hits: You’re A Lie and Standing In The Sun.
Slash released Nothing Left To Fear (2013) the first-ever motion picture he co-produced from SLASHfiction, his film/TV production company specialising in the horror genre. He is currently working on a new film project.
Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators unleashed their second album World On Fire to worldwide praise garnering Slash some of the best critical acclaim of his career.
