Slash adds Boston show to summer tour

, Staff

Slash will hit the road this summer for a tour in support of his highly anticipated sophomore solo release, Apocalyptic Love. Just as he is on the album, the former Guns ‘N Roses and Velvet Revolver will be joined by Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. The tour will make its way to Massachusetts for an intimate performance at Boston’s House of Blues on Thursday, August 2. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $32.50 and $49.50. Monster Truck will open the show.

Apocalyptic Love, the follow-up to 2010’s Slash, will be released on May 22. Slash, who wrote all the songs on the album together with Kennedy, once again teamed up with producer Eric Valentine. The Conspirators are Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass).

“Well having Myles sing on the first record inspired me to take him on the road, then taking him on the road inspired me to have him sing on the whole record,” explained Slash in a press release. “So yeah the tour last year definitely inspired the decision for him to sing on the new record. He has a really broad range. He is just very musical as far as his melodic style is concerned and he’s also very lyrical and just a really powerful singer. There’s a lot of positives about the way he sings.”

Apocalyptic Love‘s lead single is “You’re A Lie”. Check out the band’s recent performance of the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live below.

“We worked on it at soundcheck somewhere, I can’t remember where,” said Slash of the single in a press release. “It’s gone through some minor changes along the way, mainly the chorus. But for the most part, it’s remained true to its original arrangement. I can’t wait to play this live.”
