Slane, May 16, 1992
Frenzied ‘revellers’ get ‘down’ as Guns ‘n’ Roses play Slane.on their Use Your Illusion tour.
Few would scarcely believe it might take 25 years before they would return.
All they needed was a little patience.

Was this you at Slane in 1992?
If you are the glum-faced rock fan arrowed get in touch with us and claim ONE ticket to see Guns ‘n’ Roses at Slane next year, all on the ‘sheet (as soon as they go on sale).
RTÉ News was on the scene, and the broadcaster’s Archive threw up the report on their Facebook over the weekend. Look at all that hair.
Twenty years ago, today.

For your consideration.
Julien Temple‘s excellent 2015 BBC4 documentary ‘The Best Thing Since Cavan’ on The Strypes and their ongoing mission to bring R&B and rock ‘n’ roll to a new generation.
Includes eye-popping Cavan archive footage, Keith Allen, Monaghan’s much-missed Flatlake Festival and Elton John.
London rapper Plan B implores the audience at Slane to throw p*ss at him and adds “You’re the tamest crowd I’ve ever f**king met in my life”.
Because there’s nothing an Irish audience love more than to be shouted at by a bloke with a cockney accent.
