SLASH Live in Singapore at Fort Canning Park

The man has tattoos and he is one of the best guitarists in the world. Some may argue that he is the best by far! Slash, formerly from Guns N' Roses, will be staging his first concert in Singapore on the 2nd of August at Fort Canning Park.

Slash is touring in support of his highly acclaimed recently released solo self-titled debut album. Slash’s touring band includes Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy (vocals), Bobby Schneck (guitar), Todd Kerns (bass) and Brent Fitz (drums).

Set to open for Slash are American progressive rockers Coheed And Cambria. Consisting of Claudio Sanchez (vocals & guitar), Travis Stever (guitar), Michael Todd (bass) and Chris Pennie (drums), the band recently released their fifth studio album Year Of The Black Rainbow.

Tickets for this once in a lifetime concert is available now at S$115.00 and S$125.00 on the event day. More information is available at the Official Slash Facebook event page.
