Alter Bridge and former Slash vocalist Myles Kennedy come to St. Petersburg next week

Honestly, he sounds better than Axl Rose at this point.

Alter Bridge vocalist Myles Kennedy has a lot of rock ‘n’ roll cred under his belt including a stint as Slash’s non-Guns N’ Roses vocalist (and actually sounding much better than Axl at this point).

Rock’s not the only genre in his repertoire though, the Boston musician’s second solo album The Ides of March offers “Memphis Delta-soaked blues catharsis, soul ponderances, and even dalliances into country.” Kennedy is a part of Ruth Eckerd Hall’s “On the Road” series, this time at the Floridian Social Club bringing “skyscraping timbre and earth-quaking bluesy wail” to a weeknight show. Check your email for the venue’s ever-involving COVID protocols prior to the event. “If any precautions necessitate a change in seating, ticket holders will be contacted in advance with available options,” organizers wrote.

Myles Kennedy. Tuesday, Sept. 7, 7:30 p.m. $29.50-$39.50. Floridian Social Club, St. Petersburg.
