Slash and The Conspirators Perform Rare Guns N’ Roses Song

Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators just launched their 2024 world tour, and treated fans to a performance of “Don’t Damn Me,” a Guns N’ Roses song that GN’R themselves have never played live.

At the tour kickoff on Tuesday (January 23rd) in Mexico City, Slash and company broke out the deep Use Your Illusion I cut with Conspirators bassist Todd Kerns handling lead vocals, as Kennedy took a breather.

Before he rejoined Guns N’ Roses in 2016, Slash was asked in a 2014 interview if he and The Conspirators would ever perform “Don’t Damn Me.” He told the SlashFrance YouTube channel (as transcribed by Ultimate Classic Rock), “There’s just too many words. You know, it’s a cool song and everything. I think even [with] Axl [Rose], we never did it because it was just too many words without a breath, and it just makes it really impossible to do it live.”

The “River Is Rising – Rest of the World Tour ’24” will continue on its Latin American leg before visiting Asia in early March. Then, the band will launch the UK/European leg with Mammoth WVH in late March. Ticket to the upcoming gigs are available here.

Slash and the crew are touring in support of their latest album, 4, which arrived in early 2022. The reason the outing is called the “Rest of the World Tour” is because the band already toured North America in support of the LP.

In addition to the GN’R song, the opening night featured covers of Lenny Kravitz’ “Always on the Run” and Elton John’s “Rocket Man.”
