Eagle Rock Entertainment are proud to announce the UK release of Slash’s first ever live solo album “Made In Stoke 24/7/11”. The double-disc CD, DVD and Blu-ray format releases hit stores on 14 November 2011
The iconic, Grammy-winning rock guitarist and songwriter Slash has perfected the science of the six-string for over 20 years as an integral component of Guns ’N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver and as a hugely successful solo artist. On 24 July 2011, he made a very special visit to Stoke On Trent, where he was raised, at the end of the 2010-2011 tour in support of his globally chart-topping and critically acclaimed self-titled solo debut.
Captured at Victoria Hall as part of an intensive world tour, this 21-song set is a celebration of a legendary career. Joined by Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge on vocals, Slash ripped through cuts culled from his G’N’R days, Velvet Revolver, Slash’s Snake Pit, and his solo album, (including the single ‘By The Sword’). His band line-up included bassist Todd Kerns, drummer Brent Fitz and guitarist Bobby Schneck.
With favourites like ‘Back From Cali’, ‘Slither’, ‘Sweet Child ’O Mine’, and many more, this proved to be one rockin’ homecoming.

Slash is widely considered one of the greatest rock guitar players of all time. He has received countless accolades and awards including a 2007 induction into Hollywood’s RockWalk (located in front of Guitar Center in Hollywood) alongside his idols Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix. An original member of iconic rock band Guns ’N’ Roses, the Grammy-winning Slash helped the band create signature sounds like the guitar riff of #1 hit ‘Sweet Child ’O Mine’ and ‘Welcome To The Jungle’. The band dominated the 1980s and 90s music scene selling more than 100 million albums worldwide and ushered in a decade if hard charging rock music. After leaving the band, Slash went on to critical acclaim in his personal project Slash’s Snakepit, and global success with supergroup Velvet Revolver. He has been widely sought after by the biggest musicians of all time, performing with everyone from Michael Jackson to Stevie Wonder to Ray Charles. Slash recently landed on top of the charts with his first true solo album, ‘Slash’. In addition, Slash was just honoured by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce who named him as an official selection to receive a star on Hollywood’s iconic Walk of Fame. In February 2011, he performed at the Super Bowl XLV half time show, seen by more than 106 million people, becoming the most-watched programme in US history [source: Neilsen Co.]. Slash is currently in the studio working on his second solo album due for release in 2012.
