Slash Announces First Batch Of UK And Ireland Solo Tour Dates & Tickets

Former Guns Ní Roses guitarist turned solo star Slash has announced four initial UK and Ireland shows. More dates are expected to be added to the tour list shortly!

The US rocker, whose album is released today, has already confirmed his appearance at two huge UK festivals this year with a performance set for both Glastonbury and Download. Slash has now announced that he will be playing solo shows at venues in Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh and Manchester this summer.

The guitarist, who was born and raised in the UK, is expected to receive high praise for his first ever solo album that includes an all-star line up. Highly anticipated, the record contains collaborations with the likes of Fergie, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Adam Levine from Maroon 5.

The album is the rock iconís first new material since the 2007 release of ĎLibertadí by his previous band, hard rockers Velvet Revolver. Slash admits that Velvet Revolver are currently on the back-burner for him, allowing himself to concentrate on his solo project.

Speaking about Velvet Revolver, Slash commented. "We worked really hard on trying to see if we could find a singer right after the last tour stopped and we were done with Scott [Weiland]. We didn't want to rush it or make any desperate decisions."

"As soon as I get back from this tour I'll call the other guys and see where they're at and then we'll reconvene and take a good look at where Velvet's at and who's out there and get that up and running. It's definitely not dead. It's just sort of dormant."

Slash will play the following UK and Ireland dates:

June 2010

29th Vicar St, Dublin
30th Mandela Hall, Belfast

July 2010

1st HMV Picture House, Edinburgh
3rd Academy, Manchester

Tickets are available from 9am on Wednesday 12th May. Check back to stereoboard.com for presales!
