MANILA, Philippines—Slash, the former lead guitarist of American hard rock band Guns N’ Roses in the ’80s and ’90s, will perform at the Smart Araneta Coliseum May 4.
Concert producer Pulp Live World announced the concert in a 46-second video posted on YouTube March 8. The video clip also announced that Slash would be performing with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. Kennedy is best known as the Alter Bridge vocalist possessing a four-octave range.

Ticketnet, however, has not received any advice on when tickets to the concert would be available.

The British-American Slash (born Saul Hudson in Hampstead, London) shared stage stardom with Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose, and was co-writer of GNR’s classic hits “Welcome to the Jungle”, “November Rain”, and “Sweet Child of Mine”. He went solo in the early 2000s, embarking on musical projects and forming the superband Velvet Revolver.

Slash was recently named the best guitarist of 2012 by the readers of, a rock music website.

    No fail here, that indeed is Slash in the picture, the renowned Gnr guitarist. Axl Rose doesnt play guitar (at least not on stage).
