Slash vs Kanye: the battle in on in the UAE
Slash goes head-to-head with Kanye West on January 31 in a UAE music concert showdown.
The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist will perform at the Dubai Tennis Stadium on January 31, the same night Mr West takes to the du Arena stage in Abu Dhabi.
Slash performs alongside Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators as part of the closing weekend for the Dubai Shopping Festival 2013.
Organised by M4 Events, the Dubai-based entertainment company behind gigs including Enrique Iglesias, the British-American musician and songwriter is expected to play a mixture of songs which have made him famous over the years.
Slash achieved worldwide success in the late 1980s and early 90s with both GNR as well as side project Slash’s Snakepit. He then co-founded the supergroup Velvet Revolver, which re-established him as a mainstream performer in the mid to late 2000s. Earlier this year he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with other members of Guns N’ Roses.
Doors open at 8pm, show starts at 10pm and tickets, priced Dh300 and Dh500, are available at platinumlist.ae and at all Virgin Megastores.
