, Staff

After rocking Boston’s House of Blues last August, Slash has announced plans for a return visit to to the Lansdowne Street club this summer. The former Guns ‘N Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist will be joined by his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators for the performance on Monday, July 8. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers Hillbilly Herald, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $32.50 and $45.

Slash continues to tour in support of his 2012 album, Apocalyptic Love. The follow-up to his 2010 self-titled debut album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 after its release last May. 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). It features singles “You’re A Lie”, “Standing In The Sun” and “Anastasia”.

In November, Slash released a special 3-disc special enhanced edition of Apocalyptic Love exclusively at Best Buy. The first disc includes the original 13 tracks plus a pair of bonus songs: “Crazy Life” and “Carolina”. The second disc is comprised of eight unreleased acoustic tracks from the group’s Guitar Center Sessions, while the third disc is a concert DVD called Live From NY that was filmed at a sold out show at Irving Plaza in New York City.

Slash’s summer plans for New England also include a special date in New Hampshire. He’ll open for 80’s rock favorites Def Leppard at the Meadowbrook Pavilion in Gilford on Monday, July 15. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $34 to $89, are now on sale through the venue’s box office and website.
