Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators are touring in support of last year’s Living the Dream album, and they brought their guitar-driven rock ‘n’ roll show to the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, on Wednesday night.
With the legendary guitarist firmly back in Guns N’ Roses, Slash and company stuck mostly with their original songs during the 21-song set, including seven cuts from Living the Dream, as well as tunes from previous albums World on Fire and Apocalyptic Love.
Slash also showcased songs from his pre-Conspirators self-titled 2010 solo album, including “Dr. Alibi” and “We’re All Gonna Die”, which were originally sung by Lemmy Kilmister and Iggy Pop, respectively, but on this night featured bassist Todd Kerns on vocals.
But, of course, the one GN’R cover that they performed — “Nightrain” — got a tremendous rise from the fans, as most of the audience sang along to every word with Kennedy.
Throughout the night, Slash was given his turn in the spotlight, especially on “Wicked Stone”, during which the iconic axe-man took center stage for an impressive extended solo.

Opening the night were up-and-coming rockers Dirty Honey, whose retro ’70s vibe caught the crowd’s attention from the get-go. With only a self-titled EP released thus far, the band is already making waves at rock radio, thanks in large part to singer Marc LaBelle’s impressive vocals, which call to mind Steven Tyler and Bon Scott.
