August 19, 2010

According to Australia's long-running rock station Triple M, legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) played an ultra-rare acoustic show last weekend in Sydney that was filmed for Foxtel's "Max Sessions".

Slash and singer Myles Kennedy (ALTER BRIDGE) performed a stripped-back seven-song set, featuring a mix of Slash's solo material and GN'R and VELVET REVOLVER favorites.

The intimate gig happened at the Seymour Centre in the inner-city of Sydney and Triple M's Alexis Savaidis was one of the 300 lucky fans to witness the magic.

"It was a flawless performance," stated Alexis. "Myles blew everyone away with an impressive vocal range hitting insanely high notes. And, of course, Slash was unreal! Doing those solos on an acoustic guitar is really only one for the masters and he did it so well."

She also said that Slash answered questions from fans during the set which revealed a lighter side to the guitar legend.

The setlist was as follows:

01. Patience
02. Back From Cali
03. Fall To Pieces
04. Starlight
05. By The Sword
06. Sweet Child O' Mine
07. Civil War

"Max Sessions: Slash" will premiere on Max on Saturday, October 16 at 7:30 p.m. on Foxtel.
