No you’re not seeing double, just a ton of shred talent packed onto one stage.

When John 5 and The Creatures’ “It’s Alive” tour swung by Harlow’s Nightclub in Sacramento, California, the band ripped through a handful of songs which showcased John 5’s virtuosity behind the fretboard. During the show, he told the crowd that he was going to bring out a very close friend, who is also one of his favorite guitar players. Walking out onstage wearing a mask featuring John 5’s signature makeup design, Slayer and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt then tore into the Metallica classic “Enter Sandman.”

Holt also managed to continue to make it known how much he detests the Kardashians, updating his typical “Kill the Kardashians” shirt to one that now reads “Holt Awaits: Kill the Kardashians.” Last year, he explained the shirt, telling RockSverige, “I don’t begrudge them for their money, I just fucking hate people that are becoming superstars for doing nothing. Kim Kardashian was a closet organizer and then she did a sex tape and became famous for it and now they stick their name on products and I hate their guts.”

The “It’s Alive!” continues this week before wrapping up on April 20 at the Paris Theater in Portland, Oregon. See those dates here and look for Holt to be on the road as Slayer make their farewell run. All of those stops can be found at this location.
