Myles Kennedy joins Kings of Chaos in SA

2013-05-15 15:22
Cape Town – Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach will be replaced by Myles Kennedy from Alter Bridge for the Kings of Chaos concerts in South Africa, it was announced on Tuesday.

Rock legends supergroup Kings of Chaos is performing in Cape Town on 7 and 8 June at the Grand West Grand Arena, and at the Sun City Superbowl, North West, on 15 and 16 June.

Known for his vocal, guitar playing and song writing abilities, Myles Kennedy is best known for his work with rock band Alter Bridge, as well as being the lead vocalist in guitarist Slash's solo project, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. 

When Guns n Roses were inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, Myles Kennedy was chosen as the vocalist to front the band in the live performance on the night. He is currently at work on the fourth upcoming and untitled Alter Bridge album, as well as his first ever solo album. 

Rock anthems

Kings of Chaos consists of Guns N' Roses rock stars Slash, Matt Sorum, Gilby Clarke and Duff "Rose" McKagan as well as Def Leppard's Joe Elliot and Vivian Campbell, Deep Purple and Black Country Communion's Glenn Hughes and Collective Soul's Ed Roland.

Collectively, these artists have sold in excess of 300 million albums worldwide and together they have penned many of the most defining rock anthems of all time.

Kings of Chaos will perform some of their greatest hit songs in a two-hour display of frenzied guitar riffs, pounding drums, resonating bass and trademark raspy vocals.

Tickets for Cape Town are priced from R445 and R375 for Sun City and are available at Computicket.

    Myles Kennedy is pretty good. But i must admit i have never heard of Skid Row or Sebastian Bach. So if i was going to the show this is definately a plus :-) but its at Sun City which is in accessible to most people so i not going

  • Lauren Kristen Kruger - 2013-05-15 19:25

  • Christie Logtenberg - 2013-05-15 19:40

    I want a refund.

  • Jvan de Lange - 2013-05-15 19:44

    Refund ...

  • Jimmy NZ - 2013-05-15 21:03

    I'd go if it was just Slash! The rest are just big bonuses :)

  • Scott Gentry - 2013-05-15 21:03

    Huge upgrade - Myles is twice the vocalist that Sebastian is/was. I have seen them both live and there is no contest.

  • Jonathan Jono Amid - 2013-05-15 21:54

    Myles is phenomenal!!!!! This is just fantastic news. His delivery on Guns and Roses material like sweet child of mine and welcome to the jungle is so good... Man I'm stoked!

  • Adelinda von Hammerstein - 2013-05-15 22:06

    Thats just your opinion! I saw Sebastian Bach at Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis and he rocked! Myles sucks and its not wait I paid for - I want a refund!

      Then get one and let others who want tickets have them.

  • Frik Kotze - 2013-05-15 22:10

    Not nice - I also feel let down. What happened? So no Skid Row songs? Just don't wanna go anymore. Next thing u know Slash will be replaced by a nobody and no Duff at the Sun City shows. Its falling apart.

  • Adrian Joubert - 2013-05-16 00:24

    This is the bestestest news ever. Miles Kennedy's voice is God's standard to the world of rock.

      Darien Bryant - 2013-05-17 00:04

      I totally agree man been a big fan of Myles for many years he is the best I will always support what he does

  • Adrian Joubert - 2013-05-16 00:31

    To those who now want to withdraw. Please let me know if you have golden circle tickets you'd like to sell. NOTHING compares to the voice of Miles Kennedy.
