VIDEO: Slash rocks Guns N’ Roses classic in New York

Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators performed the Guns N’ Roses classic, "Nightrain", at an exclusive invitation-only concert for SiriusXM listeners on September 15 at Santos Party House in New York City, and video from the event is available.

The track was featured on GNR’s 1987 smash debut, “Appetite For Destruction.”

“Really cool, intimate show at @SantosPartyHaus,” tweeted the guitarist. “Awesome crowd. Nice to be on a small stage like that. It's been awhile! Good Xs!”

Slash played the event on the eve of the release of his third solo album, “World On Fire.”

This week, Slash will promote the project and mark the Guitar Center’s 50th anniversary with a series of three concerts in Hollywood’s most legendary clubs.

The rocker will play shows at The Troubadour (Sep 23), The Roxy (Sep 25) and The Whisky (Sep 26).

“I’ve always admired Guitar Center’s commitment to artists,” says Slash. “They’re constantly creating new avenues for musicians to get their music out to fans and inspiring people to pick up an instrument and play. They’ve also been supportive of my career since the very beginning here on the Sunset Strip. I am happy to be a part of their 50th celebration.”

For fans unable to make it to Hollywood, Guitar Center will present Slash Live from The Roxy, in a DIRECTV 90-minute concert special set to air on DIRECTV’s Audience Network (channel 239) on November 9th at 8 p.m.
