Velvet Revolver

Story by Jack Foley

VELVET Revolver have announced a new tour of the UK in March 2008, including a night at London’s Brixton Academy.

The band – comprised of ex Guns ‘n’ Roses members’ guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum, ex Stone Temple Pilots vocalist Scott Weiland and ex Electric Love Hogs guitarist Dave Kushner – will play 10 dates in total, commencing in Liverpool on March 15.

Velvet Revolver exploded onto the worldwide music scene in 2004 with their critically and commercially acclaimed Contraband album. It has since gone on to sell almost 3 million copies worldwide.

The band have developed a fearsome reputation as a live act and the prospect of the legendary Slash’s guitar work, the rhythm section of one of the biggest rock bands in history and the vocals of arguably one of the best rock vocalists of the past 15 years is an exciting prospect that’s not to be missed.

The tour dates are (all March 2008):

15 – Liverpool University
16 – Leeds University
17 – Manchester Apollo
18 – Newcastle Apollo
19 – Newcastle Academy
20 – Glasgow Academy
22 – Wolverhampton Civic Hall
23 – Birmingham Academy
25 – London Brixton Academy
27 – Brighton Centre

Tickets go on general sale later this week.
