SLASH, Manchester Apollo 8 October 2012
playing Manchester Apollo tonight and the show had sold out.
As soon as
the lights dimmed Slash came dancing on the stage twirling around with
his Les Paul playing the riff of 'Halo' running to the front of the
stage to stand on the monitors.
Then it was
time for the G'nR classic 'Nightrain', Slash's guitar sound was crystal
clear and the band were so tight. Myles Kennedy is on top form and to me
sounding at times like Axl himself, he is the perfect frontman and got
the crowd singing along to every song.
through the set bass player Todd Kerns took centre stage and took over
on vocals for songs ...'We're All Gonna Die', 'Your Crazy', 'Doctor
Alibi' and 'Out To Get Me' and 'No More Heroes'.
the stage again belting out 'Standing In the Sun', 'Ghost', 'Bad Rain',
'Anastasia' and 'Back From Cali.
Slash was on
fire tonight even though I'd been told he had been ill he did not show
it in his playing.
played some more songs off Slash's new album 'Apocalyptic Love' as well
as Velvet Revolver's 'Slither' and 'Fall to Pieces'. Inevitably,
the crowd were chanting for the oldies and were not disappointed with
'Mr Brownstone', 'Your Crazy', 'Sweet Child of Mine' and 'Paradise
Dressed in a
mixture of Guns, VR and Slash tee shirts, this was a very happy Apollo
every day you get to see a guitar legend who can still play the way he
did back in the day.
