According to Staffslive, tickets for guitar legend Slash's upcoming concert in Stoke-on-Trent, England sold out in less than 2 hours.

Tickets for the concert in the city where Slash was raised went on sale at 9AM on May 6th, and were gone before 11. Only 1500 tickets were available for the relatively small show, which will be Slash's first performance in his home town.

David Bradbury, Group Press Officer of the Ambassador Theatre Group, said of the show: "We always knew the gig was going to be popular and the fact that the gig sold out in less than two hours is brilliant."

"Slash is a local hero, he's from Stoke-on-Trent and not a lot of people know that. I think he lived here until he was 11 so this is a bit of a homecoming gig."

The former Guns N' Roses guitarist has been embracing his English upbringing on Facebook recently. Over the weekend he made a posting congratulating Stoke's soccer team on a major victory: "Stoke City beat Arsenal I see. Far f--n out! Must be some extraordinary oat cakes."

Slash will be playing four shows in England as a part of his summer European tour.

    Author here. I've read the book, I know he said 5. However, every online bio I've read on Slash says 11. His own blog, Slashsworld.com, says 11. IMDB says 11, he's actually said both 11 and 5 in different interviews. I decided to just post the quote from the theatre author and leave it, since the age at which he moved to the US is not terribly important to the point of the article. I hope you can forgive me.

    Maybe you should read the book Mr Smarty pants it doesn't say 5 years old anywhere in those first few chapters of his book! Also citing Wikipedia is a dumb move nobody cites wiki as a source because of its many inaccuracies.
