The tour is in support of Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators' latest album, the critically acclaimed "4." This album adds to the already impressive catalogue of the rock icon and promises an electrifying live experience for fans across Australia.
The Struts, a highly successful modern rock band from the UK, is joining the tour as special guests. With a track record of opening for legendary acts such as The Who, Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, and Guns N' Roses, The Struts will surely bring their energetic and charismatic performance to Australian stages.
Not to be overlooked is the inclusion of Rose Tattoo, an Australian rock institution known for its powerful live shows. Rose Tattoo adds extra excitement to an already stellar lineup with its unmistakable energy and enduring influence.
The iconic rock guitarist Slash has shared candid thoughts about the challenges his legendary group, Guns N' Roses, would face if they emerged in the Internet age. The 57-year-old guitarist, born Saul Hudson, rose to fame in the late 1980s as the lead guitarist for Guns N' Roses. The new book delves into the stories behind the celebrated musician's vast collection of 400 guitars.
During discussions about the book, Slash acknowledged that Guns N' Roses might not have thrived in today's digital landscape. Reflecting on the group's songs and antics, he remarked, "We would not have fared well in this environment, for sure… on so many different levels." He emphasised that many things from the band's early days might not align with today's acceptability standards.
Expressing relief about the absence of the internet during Guns N' Roses' heyday, Slash asserted, "I’m just glad that we didn’t have the internet back then! It would’ve been a different world altogether… most of everything that [Guns N’ Roses] did would’ve gotten us cancelled today."
Slash's acknowledgment of the potential challenges reflects the controversial nature of Guns N' Roses, known for their provocative lyrics, rebellious image, and tumultuous interactions with fans and the media. The guitarist has previously documented some of the band's scandalous moments in his 2007 self-titled memoir.
The classic rock album that featured the acoustic hit "Patience," surprising fans accustomed to the heavy metal tracks from their debut, "Appetite for Destruction", is set for a 35th anniversary!
Slash shed light on the unplanned nature of "G N' R Lies," stating, "We had some songs written on acoustic, and we just recorded them as-is on acoustic. They were really acoustic songs, to be honest. We just went into a studio and just banged them out quickly. They were very spontaneous and one-take, so it was very loose. There were no big plans for that."
Despite the controversies surrounding the band, including the provocative track "One in a Million" from "G N' R Lies," Slash refrained from specifying particular instances he's grateful didn't occur in the present day. Instead, he expressed a broad sentiment: "I can't put my finger on a specific thing because it's pretty much all of it."
Australian music fans, mark your calendars and get ready to witness the electrifying performances of Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, along with special guests The Struts and Rose Tattoo, on "The River is Rising – Rest of the World Tour '24."
