Slash and Myles Kennedy are at Mill City Nights in Minneapolis again on October 7, 2015. It isn’t the first time they have played the venue, and odds are, it won’t be the last. Those in attendance are in for a lengthy and quality show and there are quite a few people in attendance.
Mill City Nights in packed to the rafters the night of the Slash show, which isn’t the greatest thing ever if you are at that venue, as the floor sight lines are terrible if you are not up front. Purchasing a reserve seat upstairs is always a good bet on a night such as these if you aren’t one to push your way to the front. Not only that, but during a long show, you don’t want to have to remain in one spot, as getting a drink or going to the bathroom are a key aspect to any evening.
Even the most die-hard Guns ‘n Roses fans found this show a bit long. Perhaps it wasn’t the show itself, but the manner in which it was performed. The guitar solo for “Rocket Queen” went on for over ten minutes, for example. When you are in a packed venue and you have an extensive catalog, it can feel a bit much.
Regardless, it was a fun show. Slash is an amazing performer and Myles Kennedy compliments him so well. The show consists of a number of Slash, Guns ‘n Roses, and Velvet Revolver covers, satisfying every fan in the audience. We were served up renditions of songs such as “Welcome to the Jungle”, “Slither”, “Nighttrain”, and the rather unexpected, “Civil War”.
Slash will be back, most likely to Mill City Nights, and we will be there to enjoy the show.
