Slalsh will join Ozzy Osbourne for a five-week U.S. arena tour beginning January 16 in Omaha and wrapping February 22 in Jacksonville. For the trek with his bandmates Myles Kennedy (lead vocals), Bobby Schneck (rhythm guitar), Todd Kerns (bass) and Brent Fitz (drums), Slash will pull songs from his first-ever true solo album (Dik Hayd Records via EMI Label Services), a certain selection of Guns N’ Roses tunes, a little Velvet Revolver, and even some Snakepit gems.
In April, the guitarist and songwriter released the acclaimed <em>Slash</em> which debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at #3 (#1 on the Rock chart, #1 on the Independent chart, and #1 on the Hard Music chart). Digitally, the album also became the #1 overall digital album and hit #1 on iTunes in 13 countries. Internationally, the disc achieved Top 5 chart positions on over a dozen major territories, hitting #1 in both Japan and New Zealand. The 14-song disc features collaborations with vocalists from Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, Ian Astbury, Lemmy Kilmister, Chris Cornell, Rocco DeLuca, Dave Grohl, Myles Kennedy, Kid Rock, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Duff McKagan, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, and Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother.
The current single and video for the song "Beautiful Dangerous" features Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas.
