Legendary Guns n’ Roses guitarist, Slash revealed he’ll be bringing his solo band back on the road for an extensive North American tour this summer.

Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators will commence the Living the Dream tour in San Francisco on July 15. Before they wrap things up on Aug. 8 in Orlando, the lads will play six shows in Canada.

The band’s out to promote its latest record, Living the Dream (2018). The critically-acclaimed album featured hits such as: Driving Rain and Mind Your Manners.

Since reuniting with Guns n’ Roses, Slash has been focused on the Not in this Lifetime tour which ended in December after more than two years of shows across the globe.

After four years apart, Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators released the long-awaited follow-up to their 2014 smash-hit record, World on Fire.

News of the tour came via Slash’s Facebook page on Monday morning and fans went nuts with excitement.

With the dates now set in stone, frontman Myles Kennedy has also managed to find some time away from his main project, alt-rock outfit Alter Bridge.

So look out Canada — B.C., Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario — the Conspirators are back.
