Two years after performing with his Guns N’ Roses bandmates at a sold-out show in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park, legendary guitarist Slash announced plans to perform in Israel again this coming summer, on July 9 at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds.
Slash, known as one of the world’s greatest guitarists, will perform this time with his other band, known as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.
The concert is part of the band’s “Living the Dream” promotional tour for its album of the same name, as its currently makes its way around the world.
Slash is also currently touring with Guns N’ Roses, a reunion tour of the original trio — Axl Rose, Duff McKagan and Slash. It’s their first time touring since 1993, following a fractious breakup that lasted many years.
It’s been long thought that Slash, also known as Saul Hudson, is Jewish. According to a recent interview with New Zealand news site Stuff.co.nz, Slash was born in London to an English Jewish artist father and an African American costume design mother, and raised in Los Angeles.
He has repeatedly denied that he is Jewish in past interviews.
According to Rolling Stone Magazine, “Living the Dream” is Slash’s fourth solo album and his third featuring the backing band of Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, made up of Myles Kennedy, Brent Fitz, Todd Kerns and Frank Sidoris (guitar, vocals).
