Slash Replaces Stone Sour on 2013 Rock Fest Bill
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will be strapping on the instruments again this summer to play the 20th anniversary of Wisconsin's Rock Fest. The group got the call after Stone Sour had to back out due to a scheduling conflict.
Slash and his band will play the Saturday, July 20, date of the four-day music weekend, performing alongside Megadeth, Hellyeah, Warrant, Vaudeville, 7 Sins and the evening's headliners Kiss. The festival takes place in Cadott, Wis., and runs July 18-21.
After a few scattered dates in May and June in other parts of the world, Slash and his group kick off a string of North American dates beginning July 3 in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The run concludes July 25 at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. The full itinerary can be seen here.
While Myles Kennedy has been in the studio working on the next Alter Bridge album, Slash has remained busy demoing songs for a new album and working on the soundtrack for his 'Nothing Left to Fear' film.
