This fall, take yourself down to the paradise city of New Buffalo, Michigan where the grass is green and Slash will show off some pretty guitar licks.
The legendary rock star who started his career with Guns N' Roses will perform on Saturday, Sept. 29 at the Four Winds New Buffalo’s Silver Creek Event Center at 11111 Wilson Road to support his new album "Living the Dream." The casino just across the state line is home to a Hard Rock Cafe for any rockers who wanted to extend the party before or after the show.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketmaster or slashonline.com, and include digital copies of the new solo album.
Known for his signature top hat and long curly hair, Slash has won a Grammy, been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and sold more than 100 million albums. He was named second best electric guitar player of all time after Jimi Hendricks by Time Magazine.
He's played with Guns N' Roses, Slash's Snakepit, Velvet Revolver and as a solo act. He's been playing with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators for the last few years, producing the #1 rock radio solo hits “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.”
"For 'Living the Dream,' Slash and his band re-teamed with producer Michael 'Elvis' Baskette; the group is currently putting the finishing touches on the powerful 12-song collection," Four Winds said in a press release. "The band’s previous albums 'World On Fire' and 'Apocalyptic Love,' debuted in the Top Ten on 12 charts globally, spawned three #1 hit singles at U.S. Rock Radio and earned worldwide praise garnering Slash some of the best critical acclaim of his career. 'World On Fire' was tagged by Guitar World as 'another bold and unapologetically riffy statement' and 'a varied, immersive and incredibly hard rocking effort.' Rolling Stone described 'Apocalyptic Love' – the band’s debut album – as 'filled with head bangers and plenty of fancy fretwork' and Revolver declared it 'a collection of lean, high-octane rock-and-roll tunes built to be blasted out of open-top sports cars, or more suitably, open-air stadiums.'"
