British-born guitar legend Slash comes to Poland as part of a major European tour this month. The former Guns N’ Roses axeman made his name when his trademark guitar solos along with Axl Rose’s lyrics and unique singing style combined to make Guns N’ Roses the biggest group in the world in the late 1980s. The band’s debut album “Appetite for Destruction” has sold more 35 million copies since its 1987 release and in total the group has sold more than 115 million albums worldwide.
Since leaving Guns N’ Roses, Slash has continued to carve out a successful career, first alongside former Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland in Velvet Revolver, then more recently as a solo artist, with his latest album “Apocalyptic Love” released in 2012. It followed on in the same hard-rock vein as his self-titled debut, which featured the standout track “Crucify the Dead,” written with Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osbourne.
For his current tour he’s joined on stage by singer-songwriter Myles Kennedy. Slash promised that on this tour, he’ll blast through his whole back-catalogue, including his Guns N’ Roses hits and Velvet Revolver tracks.
Tickets for the event are priced from zł.150.
