The show took place at the Paramount Theater in Seattle, McKagan’s hometown. Slash, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators also covered Elton John’s “Rocket Man” and Lenny Kravitz’s “Always on the Run”, a song Slash co-wrote and performed solo in 1991.
The rest of the set was dedicated to songs from Slash’s solo career, including three tracks from his new album. 4which arrives tomorrow.
In a recent interview with UCR, the guitarist explained the decision to focus on his solo songs on this tour. “I have to admit, I really missed playing the Guns material when this thing started, so it was a great outlet for me,” he said. “But after reuniting with all my buddies in Guns, after a while I was like, ‘I don’t really need to do this with Myles and Company,’ so we don’t have any Guns songs. in the set. That said, I kind of miss the occasional Velvet Revolver song. So I haven’t put any Velvet songs in the set yet, but I might at some point put one, at least, just for the fun of it.
