Guns N' Roses announce support acts for Slane Castle gig
Guns N' Roses have announced the support acts for their Slane Castle gig.
The legendary band, featuring Axl Rose start their Not in This Lifetime Tour for 2017 on Saturday 27 May 2017 at Meath's Slane Castle.
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.
The Live Nation produced tour will visit 18 more cities across the UK and Europe including shows scheduled in London, Paris, Madrid, Vienna, Copenhagen and more.
Speaking this morning, Lord Henry Mountcharles stated “I am delighted with this line up. Royal Blood is a really exciting act and I am thrilled they are on the bill. The local connection with Otherkin is special.”
Brighton based drum n bass duo Royal Blood released their self-titled debut album in 2014, which went to Number 1 in Ireland. They played Dublin's Olympia Theatre to a sold-out crowd last Thursday.
American grunge star Mark Lanegan’s new album Gargoyle, set for release on April 28, has been garnering stellar reviews.
Otherkin are a grunge-pop band from Dublin, fronted by Slane local Luke Reilly. Their debut album is due out later this year.
