Slash Makes Promises in Oslo
Slash will lure music hungry fans to Kristiansand next summer.
The former Guns N' Roses guitarist will play his only European solo concert of 2009 at next year's edition of the Quart festival, set to take place June 30 - July 4 in Kristiansand, Norway.
Slash won't reveal who he'll be playing with before everything is ready, but he promises a big surprise.
After the Quart festival went bankrupt last summer, it was acquired for just over $400,000 by an investor group with former GN'R manager Tom Zutaut in the lead.
Slash will headline the event on the festival's opening day. He will be joined by a number of as-yet-undisclosed guests and promises to perform a mixture of old and new material.
This year's Quart festival, which was scheduled to take place July 2-5 in Kristiansand, was cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Only 2,053 tickets had been sold through Billettservice (the biggest ticketing company Norway) as of early June, forcing the organizers to file for bankruptcy.
The guitarist is also working on a solo album, on which he plans to have several high-profile vocalists take turns singing.
