Grammy Award-winning, American rock guitarist SLASH and his band Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators are thrilled to announce New Zealand rock royalty Devilskin as the support act for their January/February 2019 tour, playing Baypark Arena in Tauranga and Spark Arena, Auckland in New Zealand, and arenas throughout Australia in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.
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 Australia for these prestigious arena support shows having converted a legion of new fans and hard-rocking friends all over Europe and the British Isles and their previous Australian tour in January 2017 where they performed with Halestorm on a 3-date sold out Australian tour.
Bassist and founding member of Devilskin Paul Martin says, “We are absolutely delighted that Slash has invited us to be special guests on the Australasian tour. We had so much fun on tour through Europe and we are really excited to be bringing our high powered show to our ardent Aussie and Kiwi friends. It’s going to be a great few weeks and we are all totally looking forward to catching up with Slash and crew again.”
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 Australian 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 Australia which debuted at #4 on the ARIA Album Chart.
Australian audiences have previously seen Slash Ft Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators live 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 Billboardnow ranks as the fourth-highest grossing tour of all time.
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. He’s had 3 #2 Australian ARIA chart debuts and his first solo album, Slash (2010) is an ARIA Accredited Platinum album, whileApocalyptic Love (2012) is an ARIA Accredited Gold album.
