Slash and The Conspirators Announce Arena Tour
Slash and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have today announced that they will be returning to the UK this November/December to play arenas across the country as part of a European tour in support of their upcoming album ‘World On Fire’. The tour will hit arenas in Manchester, Leeds, Bimringham, London and Glasgow. Tickets go on sale Friday 30th May from Ticketmaster or Live Nation
‘World On Fire’ will be released on September 15 via SLASH’s own label Dik Hayd International distributed through Roadrunner Records (Europe, Middle East, Africa, & Latin America). The group revealed the cover artwork for ‘World On Fire’ designed by American contemporary artist Ron English today. Featuring the blazing title track as the first single the disc marks SLASH’s third solo album and second one with his band featuring MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), BRENT FITZ (drums) and TODD KERNS (bass).
For ‘World On Fire’, SLASH and his band tapped Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling In Reverse, Incubus) to produce. Among the 17 songs is an instrumental–a powerful new turn for the band. ‘World On Fire’ is the follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and earned SLASH two No. 1 U.S. rock radio hits–his first-ever solo–with ‘You’re A Lie’ and ‘Standing In The Sun.’ SLASH officially began recording as a solo artist with his self-titled 2010 debut album which employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Myles Kennedy among others.
‘World On Fire’ is available four weeks in advance of the UK general release as a Classic Rock Fanpack, which consists of:
