Guns N' Roses have released a video showing Slane-bound fans what they can expect this Saturday.

The legendary rockers kick off the European leg of their Not in This Lifetime Tour on Saturday, May 27 at Slane Castle.

In order to build anticipation and whet fans' appetite, the band released a promotional video with some cracking footage from previous gigs.

Guns N' Roses have also hinted that fans can expect another special announcement this Wednesday.

It's almost a quarter of a century since the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees last played Ireland and tickets for the Slane Castle gig sold out within minutes of going on sale last December.

Fans have been warned to arrive at the venue early as the band are expected to take to the stage at between 7 and 7pm.

Patrons are being urged to use public transport and arrive at the venue by 5pm. 

Organisers are warning of significant traffic delays and to add on two additional hours to your expected travel time. 

Support on the day comes from Brighton based drum n' bass duo Royal Blood, American grunge star Mark Lanegan and Dublin band Otherkin.

Concert promoters MCD have released a list of banned items that fans are not permitted to bring to the venue.
