Slash, live at the House Of Commons

Slash and Myles Kennedy launch World On Fire album with an acoustic show at the Palace of Westminster

This isn't a run-of-the-mill rock'n'roll show. Names are checked in the street by a pair of policemen, then it's down the ramp and through security. Pockets are emptied, belts removed, we're photographed and issued with passes, then it's through the metal detectors and into the Great Hall of Westminster.
