Legendary guitarist SLASH performed an exclusive and rare acoustic set on Sunday night at Sydney’s Seymour Centre, exclusively for the MAX SESSIONS.
The set-list was an amazing mix of Guns n’ Roses, Velvet Revolver and of course some hits of his massive solo album “SLASH”. He was accompanied by vocalist MYLES KENNEDY . This acoustic performance was just a dream come true for all the public there, as the musician rarely forgoes the electric guitar and amplifiers he has become synonymous with. Moreover at the very end of the show he made an extra gift playing for first time ever “Civil war” in acoustic version, a song not even planned or previously practiced for the venue.
The venue was in one word “PERFECT” with truly rock star proportions with guests including musician Axle Whitehead, band Juke Kartel (which have been acting with Slash on his Oz Tour), Gyroscope’s Rob Nassif and Zoran Trivic, Channel [V]’s Danny Clayton, Kyle Linahan, Billy Russell and Jane Gazzo, along with Gyton Grantley, Glenn A. Baker, Daimon Downey and Lee Furlong and Shane Watson.
The legendary Kate Ceberano, was the host for the acoustic gig, which was opened with Guns`n roses “Patience” a moment for tears and emotions for the fans there, just with those very first tones of his guitar, Slash made the crowd completely drawn into the raw and followed by the cool sound of his solo work including Back from Cali and Starlight, plus the Velvet Revolver track Fall to Pieces which truly showcased this legend’s genius instrumental ability and incredible musical talent.
On the other hand MYLES KENNEDY shows his eerily pitch perfect, smooth melodious vocals that bared a haunting resemblance to those of Axl Rose, complemented the raw riff-filled masterpieces that SLASH bestowed upon the crowd perfectly to the point that many a guest believed they had been transported back in time. No wonder Myles Kennedy nowadays is the first candidate to fill the spot of Scott Weiland in Velvet Revolver.
But not only amazing music was at the venue, because Slash and Myles also took a time to answer some questions from their always loyal fans and showcased that his intriguing, charismatic persona is just as evident whilst conversing with fans and the media alike.
SLASH may be best known for his timeless exploits in Guns n’ Roses, but last Sunday night, he proved that he can hold his own just as fittingly in a solo capacity. The level of musicianship on display the entire evening was that of the highest caliber which proved once and for all that SLASH is, and will continue to be, one of Rock n’ Roll’s greatest accomplishments.
You can also be part of this magic venue, so don’t miss your chance to see this icon of music like you never have before; a rare acoustic performance in the intimate surrounds of the MAX SESSIONS stage. So take note of this date:
