Guitar God Slash set to rock Milan

Legendary guitarist Slash will play live at the Civic Arena in Milan later this month.

The former Guns N’ Roses star, who released his self-titled debut solo album last year, is set to perform in the Italian city on Thursday July 28th.

Slash - real name Saul Hudson - is frequently hailed as one of the world’s greatest ever guitar players.

He rose to fame alongside singer Axl Rose in Guns N’ Roses, performing his trademark solos on hits such as Sweet Child o’ Mine, Paradise City and November Rain.

After leaving the band, he continued to write music and perform with his side project Slash’s Snakepit, until the formation of rock supergroup Velvet Revolver in 2002.

Comprising former Guns N’ Roses members Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, as well as Stone Temple Pilots vocalist Scott Weiland, the band realised two albums before going on hiatus three years ago.

Slash has since launched his solo career, with last year’s eponymous LP featuring collaborations with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop and Kid Rock.

Tickets for the iconic musician’s show in Milan can be purchased online, priced at €41.40 (£37.20) plus booking fee.
