Plan Your Visit



Slash is the iconic rock guitarist behind the legendary band Guns N’ Roses.

With his signature top hat and fiery riffs, he helped define the sound of hard rock in the late 1980s. Slash’s intricate guitar work and memorable solos became emblematic of the band’s success, including hits like “Sweet Child O’Mine” and “November Rain.”

His post-Guns N’ Roses career has seen him collaborate with various artists, solidifying his status as a rock guitar icon.


The Struts

British Rock band, The Struts—named from an offhand comment about their unbridled stage presence— have earned a global reputation as a must-see live act.

The band, comprised of lead vocalist Luke Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott, and drummer Gethin Davies, was formed in Derby England in 2012.

Bursting onto the scene with “Could Have Been Me”, they have since released three albums, including collaborations with heavy hitters like Robbie Williams, Kesha, Tom Morello, and Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen.


Rose Tattoo

Aussie hard rock combo Rose Tattoo have persisted on and off with many personnel changes for many decades, despite the deaths of most of the early band’s lineup.

Emerging in the late 1970s with a bluesy blend of strident hard rock and melodic, no-frills heavy metal, the band’s first four albums yielded the hits “Bad Boy for Love,” “Rock ‘n’ Roll Outlaw,” “Nice Boys,” and “Scarred for Life.”

After disbanding in 1987 the group reassembled in 1998 and have since gone on to issue three more studio albums, including 2020’s Outlaws, with lead singer Angry Anderson serving as the band’s sole original member.
