Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy Rock New York With Help From Openers Foxy Shazam
Slash and his gang are on a nonstop trek in promotion of their latest album ‘Apocalyptic Love’ and New York fans definitely showed them some love Tuesday night, Sept. 18, at Hammerstein Ballroom.
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy (of Alter Bridge) & The Conspirators rocked the crowd with tunes that spread the span of Slash’s shredding career. Their set kicked off with ‘Halo’ off of the new record and they went on to play other fresh tracks such as ‘Bad Rain,’ ‘No More Heroes,’ ‘Not For Me’ as well as singles ‘Standing in the Sun’ and ‘You’re a Lie.’
They also performed a few songs from Slash’s first solo disc, including ‘Back From Cali,’ ‘Starlight,’ ‘We’re All Gonna Die’ and ‘Ghost.’
During the course of the night, Myles Kennedy belted out Guns N’ Roses classics ‘Night Train,’ ‘Rocket Queen,’ ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine,’ ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ and the set closer ‘Paradise City.’
The Velvet Revolver tune ‘Slither’ made its way on the set list as well as the song ‘Been There Lately’ from Slash’s Snakepit.
Slash to a guitar is the same as Myles Kennedy to a microphone -- both are impeccable at what they do and to see them together onstage is an absolute treat.
Speaking of a treat, Foxy Shazam took the stage to warm up the crowd and just seeing this band onstage causes excessive perspiration. Frontman Eric Nally sported a new blonde look as he sang, flipped, somersaulted, danced and bounced all over the stage.
After a couple of concert goers shouted ‘You Suck’ and called Nally a derogatory name, the frontman gave them a few choice words Foxy Shazam style and proceeded to do his signature deed of smoking multiple cigarettes onstage -- provided by the crowd members, of course.
Every member of the band is constantly moving to the point where if you blink you may feel that you have missed a vital part of their set…chances are you probably did.
