After many years Slash returned to the UK town of Stoke that he was born in and delivered a killer concert filled with old songs, new songs and songs from in between. With singer Myles Kennedy, a couple of Canadians (Todd Kerns and Brent Fitz) backing him along with Bobby Schineck they give you one helluva show.
Live albums are hit and miss with most being a miss unless you are a big fan of the group. While I love the debut album from Slash’s old band G ‘n’ R the rest of their catalog had it’s moments but nothing like APPETITE. Similar with his band Velvet Revolver, the debut was solid but the follow up was a bit weaker. This live show contains some of the best from almost every incarnation of his musical career. Myles is quite similar to Axl especially on those old G ‘n’ R songs. Todd even takes to the mic on “Doctor Alibi” which is one of the albums best tracks. Very energetic and fun record to listen to. There is something for every fan of Slash’s playing on here. Myles just nails it on the old Guns tunes like “Mr. Brownstone” and “Nightrain”. Axl himself probably couldn’t hit those notes now like Myles does.
This is the best Live disc to have come out in awhile and can be ranked up there along side of ALIVE and AT BUDOKAN, it’s that good. This show just screams for a Blu-Ray release here in North America. Imagine watching this in Hi Def on a large plasma with a full DTS soundtrack blaring out of your speakers from all corners of the room.
