Here’s what Guns N’ Roses’ Slash, Duff McKagan, and fans had to say about Slane
It might have rained buckets, but nobody cared at Slane on Saturday as Guns N' Roses took the sodden stage in Co Meath.
The concert received rave reviews from the critics while fans have been equally effusive on social media.
And it seems the band themselves thoroughly enjoyed every minute of their Slane set, thanking the 83,000 strong Irish crowd...
THANK YOU IRELAND!— Guns N' Roses (@gunsnroses) May 27, 2017
GOOD F'N NIGHT 🇮🇪#GNRinSlane
