Slash and MylesÂ Kennedy and the Conspirators played an amazing show at The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver with RavenEye opening up.
RavenEye is an up and coming rock trio from the UK.Â When asked about the name, singer/guitarist Oli Brown said the name was the first thing that came to him since he has always loved birds and is a big fan of Edgar Allen Poe.Â Brown has already made a name for himself in the UK over the last ten years as a guitarist/front man, so RavenEye will be sure to quickly escalate as well.
They opened up the show and amazed the crowd with their very big and bluesy rock.Â Their sound is highly influenced by bands like Soundgarden, Queens of the Stone Age, and Led Zeppelin and really comes out in their music.Â They only just formed in Toronto in August of 2014, but Slash hand picked them to join him on this US tour which will surely give their musical career a huge jump start.
So far they have just released a five song EP that includes the hit single “Breaking Out,” but they are continuing to write new songs as they are on the road and will be in the studio doing some recording soon.Â One of the new songs they just wrote they are already playing live at their shows.
These guys really like to connect with their fans on a personal level too as they hang out at their merch area after their shows to talk to fans and they manage all their social media so they are personally responding and keeping in touch with people. Keep an eye on RavenEye because these guys are going to be big.
Headliners of the night Slash with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators came out to an ecstatic crowd that has now packed the Fillmore. Slash, of the famed Guns N’ Roses, hasn’t changed a bit in the last 20 years and still sports his signature top hat, sunglasses, and long curly hair.
They played for what seemed to be a very quick two hours and fifteen minutes and in addition to the great Slash originals they played a number of Guns N’ Roses songs including “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Mr. Brownstone,” and “You Could Be Mine.” It wasn’t quite the same as seeing Guns N’ Roses perform them, but with all the musical training and history with other bands and genres of music, Kennedy and the rest of the band did a spectacular job on all the covers. This is definitely a show you don’t want to miss if you get a chance to see them.
