'Living The Dream' World Tour 2018/2019

Recommended Posts

This kinda off topic, but just heard a new band on the radio the other day called Dirty Honey, heard they opened for Slash this year. If anyone saw them were they good?

Going the Council Bluffs show on Friday and it says that the show starts at 8. What time would the gates typically open for a show at that time?

Slash is in town (Nashville) now. Meegan posted  yeehaw earlier, then went to Gibson, Hattie B’s chicken and the Nashville Zoo on her feed so they are running around the town.

Can’t wait to see them tomorrow, especially after that bad ass performance last night!

You will have to give us a review :headbang: this b and is so good at the moment.

they were very good. My friend left more impressed with them than Slash and myles. He isn't a huge fan of slash like I am but we also went to the arena reunion run GNR did in 2017. I thought the band was average to good and the lead singer was impressive

I was very impressed even without Fitzy. They kicked ass IMO! I can see why Slash enjoys playing with them. They seem to laugh and joke around with each other during the whole show. Todd also knows how to be a performer. They all seem to interact well with the crowd.

I've been watching a few of there live performances on YT, and in my opinion the singer has a mix of Bon Scott & hints of Steven Tyler and Chris Cornell, the guitar was obviously inspired by Angus n Slash, and the rest of the band doesn't seen to bad, but there isn't noticeable special about the bassist N drummer. I do think there better then Greta Van Fleet though.

I was at the Nashville gig yesterday 

Dirty Honey were killer 

great band - Great Singer - Badass Band -Every member - Drum solo was killer - Guitar Player sounds a lot like Slash - Definitely heAr the influence 

Smkc were epic 

Shane Gaalaas was amazing filling in  for  Fitzy

He murdered the drums - Actually beat the skins to death - Killer drum solo during intros 

Frank was steady as always - Perfect Compliment to Slash - GreAt Rythmn Player

Todd Kerns is s Star - His vox we’re amazing on alibi and we’re all gonna die “ so let’s get hi” 

Myles is perfect - His voice is perfect - he has a  Ton of fun with Smkc - 

Myles can hit every note and did - He is amazing - Serve You Right was Sic

Slash put on a performance for the ages - He Played to infinity - Beast Mode wouldn’t do the man justice - Every Fucking song  he killed it and then some - He is a bad man 

The best Wicked Stone ever - my god he was on 🔥 🔥  

Every song was ripped a new one by Slash 

I just woke up from last nights gig -I’m stil in shock after what I saw out of Slash - Words can’t do him justice - he is the best in the biz - WahWah-wah wah wah- wah

A man amongst boys - Slash keeps getting better

I told my daughter that she just saw an amazing show for her first rock concert and she agreed, but really she doesn't understand how good of a show she really saw. She is only 9 and only has it to compare it to 2 pop concerts. She told me she liked the energy and how they interacted with the crowd. Now I am just scared I am going to have to afford another ticket when I go to these concerts now.

You never really appreciate the legends until you see the new bands. New bands are great, don't get me wrong, but when I've seen someone like Axl or M. Shadows perform, it almost feels like a downgrade when I see a newer act who haven't hit their stride yet. And my girlfriend is getting into rock now, so I have to buy 2 tickets for most shows :lol:

Steven Tyler and Brian Johnson were the first 2 guys that came to mind when I first heard him sing. The guitarist has a lot to learn I think, not on slash level obviously but the possibilities are endless. As a drummer, there isn't anything special. He's solid and fills in well. No holes, great tempo. won't be a chad smith or anything probably but will be a solid drummer in this band. Bright future ahead for them all! Yes I agree, GVF is a tad overrated.

I like how Dirty Honey's drummer is more low key and doesn't show off. Provides a good foundation for the rest of the band.

I hope Dirty Honey has a bright future.  I got a good feeling about them moreso than GVF.  When I'm Gone has been making waves on the Active Rock charts, now a top 10 single, and it's a solid song that fans of classic rock and people that like guys like Slash can get into easily.  Funny thing about the whole topping charts doesn't always equal bigger success or placement.  Dirty Honey has a top 10 single right now yet they are the opening band of the Skillet/Alter Bridge co-headlining tour in the Fall and it's the right placement since Skillet (whose has a song currently at #18 on the chart) and AB (Wouldn't You Rather is only at #23, but slow and steady is always been the case for AB's singles) has been around for a long time and built a great fanbase to the point where they can comfortably do their own shows and do this co-headlining tour.

I hope Dirty Honey provides a solid opening set when I'm going to see them in Raleigh, NC along with 10 Years and AB.  All part of that epic week of concert-going where I'm seeing Iron Maiden in LA, Alter Bridge's Walk the Sky album listening party in Orlando, FL, and AB's first headlining show back since late 2017 in Raleigh.

Which is why im a fan of the drummers acdc have. Good tempo, no 30min drum  solo just provide the right foundation for the rest of the band members to fly.

I like them to and looking forward to their album. I hope they dont go mellow. I feel they are more rockier and have more of a rockier vibe than GVF.

Had a chance to listen to Dirty Honey's EP last night. I thought it was pretty damn good, When I'm Gone & Rollin 7s are probably my 2 favorites, Heartbreaker has a cool riff, Down the Road sounds kind of like a Soundgarden song in a way & Scars Instrumentally has this Aerosmith Rocks Era kind of vibe. I personally really like it, and there's more potential with this band then Greta Van Fleet.

Nice words from Myles. Apparently Shane Gaalaas learned entire set just one night before the first show with SMKC. Nice solo Shane!

Does Slash usually spend most of his time on the right side of the stage for these shows? Going to a show next week with a pit so trying to coordinate.

Slash back to Riverport Ampitheater tonight, St. Louis.  First time back to that venue since the 91 riot. He's played elsewhere in St. Louis many times, but I think this is the 1st time at Riverport. Now it's called Hollywood Casino Ampitheater.

Went to the CB IA show last night. Didn't stay the whole show. Tix were free and I don't like the songs. Same generic 4/4 time sig every song. Can't wait for GNR on Oct 15th.
