Rock god Slash will jet into Australia next month to help launch new pay TV music channel MTV Classic.
The former Guns ‘N’ Roses guitarist will perform some of the band’s classic hits, as well as tracks off his upcoming debut solo album, Slash, at the April 28 event at the Palace Theatre in Melbourne.
The new channel replaces VH1. It will focus on music from the 1980s to the 2000s, as well as artists that shaped an MTV generation.
The channel will go live on Foxtel and Austar at 5:00pm AEDT on May 1.
