Yesterday we received word that the Aerosmith/SLASH concert at Concord Pavilion was cancelled due to illness of drummer Joey Kramer. No more than a couple hours after, we received word that SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have confirmed a show for the same night at The Fillmore San Francisco.  Slash made sure to LET ROCK RULE as they quickly put together a show that would takeover San Francisco!

The line circled around the block as die hard fans were glad to be there for the just announced concert. It was amazing to imagine that the concert was only five hours in the planning and it went off without a hitch. The crowd included many fans who were supposed to be at the Concord show and raced over once they heard the official announcement as well as fans who were not able to afford the Concord show or get good tickets. They were then treated to a night full of stellar rock n roll that included a set that lasted well over 2 hours.

I have seen Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators about five times and each time, they seem to outdo themselves. They are such a solid band that delivers pure epic sound that surpasses studio quality. Myles’ vocals are superb as they deliver emotion and power through each note. I have often said that man could sing the menu at Starbucks and sound amazing! He truly excels at his art. Frank was a madman on rhythm guitar and yet he makes it look so easy. Brent on drums, once again delighted us with his precision and solid drumming. Todd is a bad ass bassist and highlights his magnetic personality with his charismatic stage presence. Last, but never the least is Slash who performed at a 150%, bleeding the passion and energy into his playing. He is just jaw dropping to watch, when he solos –  you listen! You are just held captive by his prowess and his impeccable playing. It was one amazing set.
