LORD HENRY seems to have forgiven and forgetten the events of seven years ago, as Oscar-winning star Eminem has been booked for a Slane date in August, two months after rockers Bon Jovi will headline the Meath venue.
The controversial rapper pulled his 2005 concert date, prompting Lord Mountcharles to then vow Eminem would never play a Slane concert again.
However, time seems to be a great healer, even in the entertainment world, and it was confirmed last Wednesday that the artist will headline a show for 80,000 people on August 17 next year.
Bon Jovi are set to play the same open air venue on June 15. 'In 2005 I said Eminem was a stunning artist. He is even more so today. I am thrilled he is going to play Slane,' said the castle owner.
Of the two concerts so close to each other, the concert organiser said: 'We're keeping the ticket price for both shows to below €80.'
