In his biggest Belfast headliner to date, Slash has been confirmed for Belsonic 2019 along with special guests.
One of the biggest names in rock 'n' roll, Slash will take the stage at Ormeau Park on Wednesday 12th June 2019.
His biggest Belfast show to date, his set will feature Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, with support from Blackberry Smoke and The Screaming Eagles.
Longtime collaborators, Slash released his third album featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators - Living The Dream - in September of this year. This followed 2014's World On Fire and Apocolyptic Love released in 2012.
Speaking of the new album Slash said, “It’s a natural progression from World on Fire, for sure.”
“I think it has a little more diversity—some of the ideas are not really what I would consider to be predictable.” At the same time, he adds, “The record is also a bit more structured, with songs that are shorter and more to the point than last time.”
Kennedy agreed, “I don’t know that there are as many of those sort of ‘epic sonic journeys’ that we took on the last record,” he says. “Although there are songs that take you on a trip, like ‘Lost Inside the Girl.’ But overall a lot of these songs—things like ‘My Antidote,’ ‘Read Between the Lines,’ ‘Slow Grind’--they’re pretty precise statements, and they definitely fall in line with the type of sound we’re known for. There’s a certain type of sonic calling card that we’ve developed over the years, and you can hear it front and center on this record.”
Tickets for Slash at Belsonic priced £30 will go on sale this Friday, November 30th at 9am from Ticketmaster.
