Metallica have touched down in Ireland ahead of their highly anticipated concert at Slane tomorrow.

The legendary rockers checked into the five-star Merrion Hotel in Dublin for a two-night stay and were pictured arriving at the luxurious accommodation on Friday, before taking to the stage in their first Irish concert in 10 years and their first ever Slane performance. They last played on our shores in 2009 at Marlay Park in Dublin.
