[Photos] Slash Brings Hall of Fame Sound to the Orbit Room in Grand Rapids

Slash has been on quite the roll recently. The guitarist was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month with his old Guns N’ Roses bandmates (minus Axl Rose). His new album, Apocalyptic Love, drops in stores next Tuesday (May 22) and is currently touring with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators to promote the record. Check out our photo gallery from their show at the Orbit Room last night (May 17).

Slash and Co. played for over 90 minutes, keeping the crowd captivated the entire time. They performed tracks from the forthcoming Apocalyptic Love and Slash’s previous self-titled solo debut. Proving that he knows his roots, Slash and his band dug into the icon’s back catalog and played a few Guns N’ Roses hits like “Night Train” and “Paradise City.” They even busted out some tunes from Slash’s other band, Velvet Revolver. Alter Bridge frontman Kennedy did an admirable job filling in for Axl Rose and former VR singer Scott Weiland.

Another interesting note to point out is the special guests that Slash had up on the V.I.P. balcony. Members of Rob Zombie‘s crew were in town for their GRD show tonight at the DeltaPlex Arena with Megadeth. While we didn’t personally see Zombie himself, his guitarist John 5 was there to enjoy the show.
