Slash and Myles Kennedy plays gig at House of Commons

Slash and Myles Kennedy, rocked a house of a slightly different type than usual, when he performed an acoustic set in the UK Parliament.

He played five songs alongside vocalist Myles Kennedy as part of MP Mike Weatherley's Rock The House scheme, which seeks to encourage and support young musical talent.

The pair delivered a set featuring brand-new track Bent To Fly alongside classics Standing In The Sun, Starlight, Fall To Pieces and Sweet Child O'Mine.

Speaking about the event, Weatherley, who is Intellectual Property Adviser to the Prime Minister, commented: "It was a privilege to welcome such rock icons to Parliament and I am grateful for Slash and Myles’ support for my Rock the House competition. The gig was absolutely fantastic and it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the launch of Slash's new album, 'World On Fire'. It was an honour to be in the first ever audience to hear their new record played live, along with the classics such as 'Sweet Child O' Mine', which certainly got the audience in fine spirits."

There’s eclectic festivals with a mish-mash of music and I appreciate that, we played Glasto a few years ago, it was interesting. But when Metallica comes in you can’t have them come on after f**king Katy Perry
