By big concert standards, Slash’s performance at the Dubai Tennis Stadium on Thursday could well be termed an ‘intimate’ gig.
With the Guns’n’Roses legacy now, just that, a legacy, Slash was able to slash and burn his way through a set that showcased his guitar playing skills just for what they are – amazing guitar playing skills.
That’s no disrespect to Myles Kennedy who fronted the show and more than comfortably covered the GNR back list – including Paradise City and Welcome to the Jungle.

The band is called the Conspirators and if conspiracy to a great new hard rock blues-tinged sound was the plan - it worked.
And then, Alice Cooper took the stage for the last song.
Yeah, Alice Cooper and Slash ‘live’ in Dubai. Now that has a whole different feel and ring to it. One that could sell out any arena, any time.
They just did the one song – School’s Out For Summer – and sadly, by the time everytime got over the shock, the song was done and so was Slash and Cooper.
