Its No Surprise Slash Chose Rose Tattoo For His Next Australian Tour

in News

Slash will head back to Australia in 2024 with Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators and it is not a surprise at all that Rose Tattoo have been chosen to open the shows.

Slash is a huge Rose Tattoo fan. Guns N’ Roses first covered Rose Tattoo’s ‘Nice Boys’ on ‘Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide’ in 1986 and again for the ‘G N’ R Lies’ EP of 1988. ‘G N’ R Lies’ was released on 29 November, 1988, the year after the debut Gunners album ‘Appetite for Destruction’.

The original ‘Nice Boys’ from Rose Tattoo was the second tracks on The Tatts debut album recorded in Sydney a decade earlier in 1978.

Guns N’ Roses have welcome Angry Anderson on stage numerous times in Australia to play the song live with them. Angry sang it with GN’R in 2017 in Sydney, in 2013 in Melbourne and Brisbane and in Sydney and Auckland in 2007.
