A rockin’ Valentine’s night!
Best known as the former lead guitarist of hard rock band Guns N’ Roses, Slash made his way back to Sunway Surf Beach last weekend for a one-night-only concert. Slash, who was last in Malaysia in 2010, came back to our shores with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators as part of his “World On Fire” tour on 14th Feb (Saturday) and you can bet that he most certainly gave us a Valentine’s night to remember.
The concert kicked off at about 7:30 in the evening which saw local rock band Blister dish out a high energy performance as the opening act. Consisting of Ramon Singho, Mario Singho, Zach De Costa, Julio Singho, and Darian Henry, Blister is a hard rock n’ roll band from Malacca which formed in 2000.
No stranger to the rock scene here in Malaysia, Blister performed their originals to get the crowd in the mood and ready for Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. And we can’t deny that they did a good job at prepping us for what’s to come!
Not long after Blister’s performance, the moment everyone was waiting for arrived as Slash, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators took over the stage. The crowd went into a frenzy the moment the legendary Slash, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators came on stage and performed their first song.
Cue the feeling of having your wildest dream turned into a reality 😉
Giving the crowd just what they wanted and needed, Slash performed some of his most famous tracks from his Guns N’ Roses days to his latest tracks.
The crowd went ballistic when they performed “Ghost” and went into a bigger frenzy when they performed the Guns N’ Roses original, “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.
The concert, which was high in energy from both the performers and the crowd, went on for about two and a half hours before Slash, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators ended the night with “Paradise City”.
Some lucky fans even had their posters autographed by Myles Kennedy after he said thank you at the end of the night.
Honestly, we probably had one of the best Valentine’s nights of our lives and it’s safe to say we weren’t the only ones who felt that way.
