Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have announced a fall headlining tour with openers Foxy Shazam starting September 4th in San Diego, CA. and wrapping up on October 3rd in Los Angeles. It adds more dates to a previously announced summer North American tour that will kick off on July 12th, after Slash receives his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 10th.
For the tour, Slash teamed with Guitar Center–the world’s largest music retailer-–to offer a one of a kind opportunity to twenty unsigned American bands. 20 bands will be hand selected to be Slash’s opening acts and will perform on the fall tour in the cities closest to their hometown. At the end of the fall run, one of the opening bands will be named by Slash as the grand prize winner of Guitar Center On Stage. Not only will the bands be opening for one of the world’s greatest guitarists, but they will also receive a tour support prize pack that includes gear from Ernie Ball, Zoom, Dunlop, Monster Cable, Pro-Mark, and Converse. The top performing band on the tour, as selected by Slash, will be named the grand prize winner and take home $10,000 in guitars from Gibson and Epiphone, plus a $5,000 shopping spree at Guitar Center and more. The 20 bands will be announced in August.
The exclusive presale for Citi card members starts Tuesday, July 3rd. Citi card members will also have special access to tickets as well as VIP experiences at www.citiprivatepass.com.
