Slash, featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, set the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham ablaze with a night of electrifying rock on the opening night of the UK leg of their tour, supported by Mammoth WVH. The evening was a celebration of legendary riffs, powerful vocals, and undeniable energy that left the audience roaring for more.

Kicking off the night, Mammoth WVH unleashed a sonic assault with a setlist packed with punchy tracks. Songs like ‘Another Celebration at the End of the World’ and ‘You're to Blame’ showcased the band's raw talent and ability to captivate the crowd. Wolfgang himself now a seasoned veteran, and it shows. Infectious energy and tight musicianship, Mammoth WVH set the stage on fire, warming up the audience for the main event. All too often Mammoth are touring as a support act (and they’ll cross our path again in May with Metallica) We only hope they soon book in the headline tour they deserve.
