Slash Sets Dallas on Fire – Concert Review

Coming in strong, Chris Jericho and his band Fozzy were ready to give a show to the Dallas crowd like no other. With fans being very energetic, and the band returning the favor, the show was off to a great start. Performing their hits, Do You Wanna Start a War, Sandpaper, God Pounds His Nails, ending their set with Bad Tattoo, and giving an awesome performance from interacting with the fans by shaking their hands to jumping on stage, Fozzy held their ground and was a great opener for  Slash.

 The last show in the U.S. of the tour, Slash was ready to set the Dallas on fire. Fans were more than excited to see the icon shred his instrument with its iconic guitar skills and riffs. With an epic 20 song set list, it was gonna be an incredible set. Starting with the hit single of the album Apocalyptic Love, You’re a Lie, the show was off to a great start, fans hyped, and everyone with their cellphones out recording or taking photos of the legend Slash, it gave a unique but awesome atmosphere. 

Wicked Stone, Bent to Fly, and Anastasia were a couple of the highlights. Myles Kennedy’s voice was as perfect as usual with its unique tone. The set also included legendary Guns n Roses hits like Night Train, and Welcome to the Jungle, and an amazing rendition of You Could Be Mine. Fans were craving GnR songs and that’s what they got. In my opinion that made the whole show worth the ticket price.

 Slither, from Slash’s former band Velvet Revolver was also performed. Everyone seemed to enjoyed it too, but once the next song started, the crowd went crazy! When people heard the catchy and famous guitar intro of Sweet Child o Mine, the crowd came unglued! It was an indescribable feeling that gave goosebumps to anyone when you hear the crowd singing along to the chorus of the iconic song. The show ended with an awesome performance of Paradise City where confetti came off the ceiling giving the feeling as if it was a big celebration, and maybe it was to many people.

 At the end of the day it even if the set would have 5 songs, the fans would be extremely happy just to see the legendary guitarist. This band is not just about the guitarist, it also has very talented members like the vocalist Myles Kennedy, who sings Guns n Roses songs as good as Axel if not better. It was the first time seeing Slash live and it definitely won’t be the last. I’m sure it won’t be the last for everyone that was there on the near sold out venue.
