Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators announce Devilskin as support for their AU/NZ 2019 tours

Grammy Award-winning, American rock guitarist Slash and his band Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators are excited to announce New Zealand rock royalty Devilskin as the support act for their 'Living The Dream Tour', playing Tauranga's Baypark Arena and Auckland's Spark Arena as well as arenas in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth in Australia next year January and February.

After playing for their eagerly-awaiting Kiwi fans, Slash and his band will head straight to their Australian tour to run a series of shows at Perth's RAC Arena, Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre and Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena.

One of New Zealand's most dominant live acts, Devilskin, have spent the last few months playing across 14 European countries on a sold-out tour with Halestorm, as well as headlining their own 10-date tour of the UK. It's been a crazy two years since they played with Disturbed at Spark Arena in November to a full-house of 11,000 people on the release of their second album, which like their first, entered the NZ album chart at #1.

Devilskin return to NZ for these prestigious arena support shows having converted a legion of new fans and hard-rocking friends all over Europe and the British Isles.

Bassist and founding member of Devilskin Paul Martin says, "We are absolutely delighted that Slash has invited us to be special guests on the Australasian tour. We had so much fun on tour through Europe and we are really excited to be bringing our high powered show to our ardent Aussie and Kiwi friends. It's going to be a great few weeks and we are all totally looking forward to catching up with Slash and crew again."

Known for their blistering and intense live shows, witness Devilskin perform their stunning, explosive sets with Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators next year.

New Zealand's obsession with Slash, in any guise, is steadfast—we can't get enough of him. A new story started with his first solo album 'Slash' (2010), which debuted at #1 on the Official NZ Album chart and is certified Platinum. As Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, he released the critically acclaimed 'Apocalyptic Love' (2012), followed by 'World On Fire' (2014) and now the latest album, 'Living The Dream'.

Slash has amassed album sales of over 100 million copies and was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. "Making records and touring and getting up on stage every day and playing music with these guys, that is the essence of living the dream," says Slash.

The NZ connection is strong—this will be the band's third tour of the country's largest arenas and their first date with a Tauranga audience! Make sure you become part of the latest chapter in Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators' love affair with New Zealand!
