At their first show in Berlin they also tried something new. It was the first time ever that they played the song called “Slither”. Originally, this song is from the band Velvet Revolver. Guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan, and former drummer Matt Sorum are all part of this band. They haven’t played since 2008, when the singer Scott Weiland left the band, and departed in 2013.
