Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators are set to release a new concert film and live album. The Living the Dream Tour captures the band’s incendiary performance on their sold-out 2019 tour, in front of a rabid crowd at London’s legendary Hammersmith Apollo. Released through Eagle Vision, it’s set to be released on DVD+2CD, Blu-ray+2 CD, 3LP Black Vinyl, limited edition 3LP Red Vinyl, digital video and digital audio, on 20 September.
Living The Dream Tour features Slash and the troops roaring through a highly charged 2-hour set of tracks from all four Slash solo albums. The set includes ‘Call of the Wild’, ‘Driving Rain’, ‘By The Sword’, ‘Back From Cali’, ‘Starlight’, ‘World On Fire’ and ‘Anastasia’. There’s a searing live version of ‘Shadow Life’, as well as ‘We Are All Gonna Die’ and ‘Doctor Alibi’, during which Myles Kennedy switches vocal duties with bassist Todd Kerns.
Slash tears up Hammersmith Apollo with staggering solos while dropping giant slabs of riffs with casual ease, delivering the essence of rock ‘n’ roll in this show. You could see it, hear it and feel it. “Every night is chasing that magic and when it happens, it’s euphoric,” Slash states.
Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have been winning lots of new fans. “I just love it…London kicks ass”, Slash says. The band have also received reams of great press for their live shows, with Culturefly saying, “[Slash] peels off spiralling blues-tinged riffs & gargantuan solos with a concentrated ease that’s wondrous to behold. The speed at which he plays is staggering, the feel gut-wrenching, the glacial cool almost too much to bear.”
The Living The Dream Tour DVD/Blu-ray also includes a bonus feature: Live In London mini-documentary, including interview with Slash and Kennedy, plus behind the scenes footage of the tour.
Living The Dream Tour is out on 20 September and can be bought here.
