Great Performance by Slash – Live in KL

August 6, 2010 by Galvin Tan in Entertainment with 4 Comments




Slash, the former Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist rocked Sunway and his fans last night with what I consider as the greatest hard rock concert in Kuala Lumpur for the year 2010. Lucky me, I’ve got a VIP ticket courtesy of my elder brother.

I must say, this concert brings back some memories as swarms of ‘old school rockers’ put up a long queue into the vicinity of Sunway Lagoon. A totally different crowd from MTV World Stage because these fans are passionate hard rock lovers as compared to the MTV concert last weekend.

 

The 45-year-old guitar legend, together with his friends jammed a number of songs from his newly launched self-titled solo album, Slash with Myles Kennedy as lead vocalist. Myles Kennedy is the co-lead guitarist for the hard rock band Alter Bridge and he is pure awesomeness. He pulls off a pretty good vocal singing Sweet Child O’ Mine, although I still prefer it to be Axl Rose, but nevertheless he still managed to attract the crowd to sing along. Check out the video below as the crowd rock out with Slash and Myles… it’s orgasmic!

Slash and Myles also performed a couple more songs from GNR’s original tracks such as Paradise City and Civil War. The crowd was in total trance headbanging to the heavy beat of the drum and screeching guitar tunes of Paradise City. I haven’t had such good experience since God knows when. Gosh…how I miss rock concerts.

Although I enjoyed myself at the concert, I was also put off by the bad event organising by the organizer. There isn’t any proper signage of how to get to which part of the are and the crowd control crew is all bullshit. I’ve got friends having PS1 & 2 tickets who made it into the VIP zone. So what’s up with that, Mr. Event Organizer? You guys suck!

Nevertheless, Koay Ling, Dennis and myself had an enjoyable time rocking to Slash and Myles (not the event organising). We’ll be looking forward to more rock concerts in near future and hopefully there will be more hard rock concerts in Kuala Lumpur this year.

Rock On! _\m/

Trackbacks

  1. […] in Kuala Lumpur on 24th March shows how much I’ve drifted away from them, not mentioning Slash’s show at Sunway Lagoon in 2010. But I don’t think it’s so much the distance between Sabah and Kuala Lumpur, but rather […]
