Former Guns N’ Roses members to honor Slash at Road Recovery benefit


It’s not all of Guns N’ Roses circa 1992, but it’s close.

As this year's Road Recovery honoree at their annual concert in New York City next month, Slash will be performing with former GNR members Matt Sorum, Duff McKagan and Gilby Clarke, as well as Wayne Kramer and more, to support the charity.

Road Recovery is dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities by harnessing the influence of entertainment industry professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, knowledge, and resources.

With support from the mental health field, Road Recovery provides hands-on mentorship training, educational/performance workshops, peer-support networking, and “all access” to real-life opportunities by collaborating with young people to create and present live-concert events.

Road Recovery empowers young people of all backgrounds to face their struggles and helps them develop comprehensive life skills, guided by professionals and supported by a community of like-minded peers.

This year's Road Recovery annual concert happens September 13 at the Best Buy Theater in New York City.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, August 10 at NOON EDT through Ticketmaster here.
