Slash To Smash Australian Arenas

The guitar god will be here in August.

More Slash More Slash

There are few guitar gods that can lay claim to having such a hold on the rock music world and its devotees as the one and only Slash, and the man himself is back in Australia this August for massive dates all around the country.

Bursting onto the LA glam rock scene with a little band by the name of Guns N' Roses in the mid-1980s, he quickly became considered one of the greatest exponents of the electric guitar we had ever seen and to this day continues to enthrall audiences with his astonishing work on the fretboard and all round musicality.

He has a new record by the name of Apocalyptic Love coming out on Friday (which we called "a brilliant rock'n'roll record"), so the timing for his return to Australia is just perfect. Keep in mind the fact that his last Australian tour sold out in a mere ten minutes and make sure you have some cash put aside so you don't miss out on seeing one of the true guitar gods in the flesh, with the insanely gifted Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators helping him bring the songs, both old and new, to life.

Slash will destroy the following venues:
