VR announce second Sydney date and support act + Slash: I live to rock + VR to appear on cover of "Tears In Heaven" + Slash interview
Sydney music fans rejoice Velvet Revolver is back for seconds! Due to overwhelming demand, the rock super group will play a second Sydney show at the Hordern Pavilion on Thursday February 24.

Velvet Revolver unites some of the biggest names in rock, boasting the likes of Scott Weiland, (enigmatic former frontman of the Stone Temple Pilots), Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum (from the legendary Guns n Roses) and Dave Kushner (Wasted Youth and Electric Love Hogs).

Such a stellar line-up commands a stellar support act, and The Frontier Touring Company are delighted to announce that Aussie rock legends the Screaming Jets will be warming crowds up nation-wide before each Velvet Revolver show.

Tickets for the new Sydney concert go on sale on Friday 21 January - don't miss out this time!

There's a new Slash/VR article at thesun.co.uk.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne continue to seek ways to help tsunami victims in Southeast Asia, announcing Monday their plans to record a cover of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven" to benefit storm recovery efforts. And they've managed to line up a whole galaxy of stars to help.

Gwen Stefani, Pink, Velvet Revolver, Steven Tyler, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne are among the artists lending their voices to the song, sales of which will benefit the Disasters Emergency Committee's Tsunami Earthquake Appeal.

The recording sessions will take place on two continents, starting this Thursday at London's Whitfield Street Studios, where Velvet Revolver, Elton John and Italian opera star Andrea Bocelli will lay down vocals.
