7th November, 2015 will go down in history for Mumbai as a legend performed in the city of dreams for the first time ever. Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators had their fans head-banging and screaming till the night lasted at the Reliance JIO Gardens. The fans started rolling in at the venue around 4 in the evening to catch every bit of the concert and some of the lucky ones got to meet Slash! (FYI: That’s a rock n‘roll lover’s dream). Thermal And A Quarter (TAAQ), Them Clones and Ginger Feet opened for the legend. As the day passed by and the night took over, people had their eyes glued to the stage, for the curtain to fall and witness a concert that Mumbai will remember for ages. In India for his World on Fire Tour after fifteen long years; we believe that Slash was as excited as his fans before the epic concert begun.
Just after making the entrance and performing the first song, Myles started the interaction with his fans by a very warm “Namaste, Mumbai!” and that was the moment each and every one had their voices screaming and cheering! After every song they performed, Myles thanked the crowd by a “shukriya!” He actually did some homework before coming on stage.
When you have Myles on vocals and one of the best guitarists of the world performing in front of you with the Conspirators, there’s nothing you’d ask for at least in that current situation. Slash had everyone gripped to their spot while he slayed some maddening solos on his Les Paul and believe us when we say this, we had our eyes on God working his magic that left us awestruck.
People jumped and had their jaws dropped as they saw Slash pulling off insane riffs that were too good to be real. The concert had two highlights; when Sweet Child O’ Mine was played out of nowhere and when the concert ended very abruptly… or not! Because the band came back on stage while the crowd cheered for another song and Paradise City was played. That was one groundbreaking act, hands down! Now, we don’t know when will be the next time we see Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators but we hope it happens soon.
We made a trip to Mumbai for the sole reason of seeing the Legend perform live and it was worth every dime! Next concert is in Bengaluru on 14th November and if you missed the Mumbai concert, we’re telling you, this might just be once in a lifetime opportunity for you. Cheers!
