Another batch of Soundwave 2015 sideshows have begun rolling in with today’s announcement that Guns N Roses riff-maker turned frontman Slash and glam metal act Steel Panther will be playing joint Sidewave shows in Sydney and Melbourne this February.
In addition to their sets at Soundwave 2015, Slash and his hair metal counterparts Steel Panther will play Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Tuesday 24th February and Melbourne’s Festival Hall on Thursday 26th February.
Earlier this year while speaking Music Feeds, Slash made it plain and clear that he will “definitely” play some sideshows while in the country. Though nothing had yet been confirmed, festival boss AJ Maddah also admitted he had little control over the guitar god’s schedule, saying, “You can’t keep that guy down!”.
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators will be touring on the back of their latest album, World on Fire. Irreverent rockers Steel Panther will showcase tunes from their 2014 album, All You Can Eat.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, 21st January from 9am local time. See tour dates and ticketing information below. For more Sidewaves info, check our details page or follow our Sidewaves Feed. Stay tuned for more Sidewaves expected to be announced today.
