SLASH's 'Homecoming' Concert Sells Out In Less Than Two Hours
According to StaffsLive, legendary guitarist Slash's (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) "homecoming" gig in the Midlands region of England this summer sold out in less than two hours.
Tickets went on sale at 9 a.m. Friday morning (May 6) for the concert on July 24 at the Victoria Hall in Stoke-on-Trent, the town where Slash was raised.
Over 1,500 fans will attend the show, which marks Slash's first-ever concert in his hometown.
David Bradbury, Group Press Officer of the Ambassador Theatre Group, told StaffsLive, "We always knew the gig was going to be popular and the fact that the gig sold out in less than two hours is brilliant.
"Slash is a local hero, he's from Stoke-on-Trent and not a lot of people know that. I think he lived here until he was 11 so this is a bit of a homecoming gig."
