The website for Mike Weatherley, the Conservative MP (Member of Parliament) for Hove and Portslade and Intellectual Property Adviser to the Prime Minister, reports that Slash performed at the House of Commons in Parliament last night. He was joined by Myles Kennedy for an acoustic set. The two performed to about 200 people in the Terrace Pavilion, including those in the music industry, politicians, celebrities and fans. Weatherley then took the two on a tour of the Houses of Parliament.
It was part of the Rock The House competition, which was founded by Weatherley in 2011 with backing from industry and celebrities. It supports creative industries in the UK and protects and promote an artists' Intellectual Property Rights. This was also the launch for Slash's new album World on Fire, which will be released officially on September 15.
Weatherley said: "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."
