The eclipse of the full Blood Moon on Sunday night put a mysterious spell on the Fillmore Detroit. Energy was high and spirits soared, when Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators performed. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, is touring in support of his new release World on Fire. The album was just released on September 16th of this year. This is the second solo album Slash has done featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.
Opening the show was The Last Internationale, a pretty sweet hard rock band out of New York. Vocalist Delila Paz has a soothing sexy voice and funky style to match. The three piece tore it up on stage and warmed up the crowd with a powerful set of songs. They were well received by the Detroit Rock City crowd.
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators hit the stage at 9pm. Their performance was pretty amazing and their energy was infectious. Slash played the guitar with such ease and grace. The man looks as though he has not aged one bit. Slash still sports his signature timeless Rock n’ Roll Leather Top Hat, Aviator sunglasses and those tight black leather pants. Slash flashed a smile here and there, but Kennedy was all smiles the entire performance. He also seemed surprised by all the Detroit Rock City love. The Detroit crowd was loud and they were rowdy! It was no surprise to see dozens of G’N’R shirts on fans in the audience too. Slash’s entire band is super sexy and super tight. All the guys were having a blast on stage too, and who doesn’t love to see that?
The band performed five songs off the new album and a string of Guns N’ Roses hits. Myles Kennedy has the most incredible voice and sang the G’N’R songs very well. He normally does most of the singing, but this time guitarist Todd Kerns took over lead vocals on two songs “Doctor Alibi” and “Welcome to the Jungle”, and totally nailed it. Kerns can sing his little heart out on stage too, and is also a riot to watch perform. The show was spectacular and the crowd sang along loudly to all the G’N’R songs. The evening was absolutely perfect and Detroit witnessed an epic Rock n’ Roll performance by one of the most famous guitarist ever!
