One of the most popular choices of second stage festival headliner in Download’s eleven year (and counting) history, Slash, along with his good friend Myles Kennedy and their band The Conspirators kicked off the opening night in spectacular fashion last year on the Zippo Encore stage.
Mixing Guns N’ Roses classics, a couple of Velvet Revolver hits and songs from both of Slash’s albums, they gave one of the performances of the weekend. As a result, we’ve got a great video of Slash, Myles and friends performing the GnR classic Paradise City as our Download Festival video of the day for you today. Check it out below:
Myles Kennedy is currently hard at work in the studio recording Alter Bridge’s fourth album, with Alter Bridge due to return to the UK alongside Shinedown and Halestorm this October (full details of that tour here). Slash, Myles and The Conspirators recently completed the most recent leg of the Apocalyptic Love world tour, visiting the UK twice on that tour including Slash’s first ever solo arena show in the UK in Nottingham.
