Legendary guitarist Slash is heading down under soon to help launch a new MTV music channel on cable TV.
He became a household name as part of the legendary rock group, Guns ‘N’ Roses, and now uber-guitarist Slash is heading Down Under to celebrate the launch of our latest channel MTV Classic.
Melbourne’s Palace Theatre will set the backdrop for the event – titled ‘MTV Classic: The Launch’, held on Wednesday April 28, 2010.
A host of music industry folk and sexy celebs will head to the event to see Slash perform classic Guns ‘N’ Roses songs as well as tracks from his upcoming debut solo album ‘Slash’ with some of Australia’s finest musicians.
We can’t wait to see who steps out on stage with top-hat laden muso, we imagine there’s a whole host of artists who have him on their wish-list of collaborators.
Not only is Slash one of the most recognisable personalities in music history, but he is one of the marquee playable characters in Guitar Hero III, has two signature Gibson guitars in his name, and authored his own top-selling biography ‘Slash’ in 2007.
Want to get your hot little hands on an invite to the event? Tickets to ’MTV Classic: The Launch’ will be available to the public via promotions on radio partner Nova and MTV Australia, so stay locked to mtv.com.au for more deets.
The MTV Classic: The Launch will kick off MTV Classic as the channel goes live on May 1, 2010 at 5pm (AEST). MTV Classic is available on Channel 801 on Foxtel and Austar.
The self-titled album, ‘Slash,’ is set for release in Australia on April 2 and features the who’s-who of music industry talent including collaborations with Fergie, Ian Astbury, Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock and Australia’s own Andrew Stockdale to name a few.
