Concert promoters MCD have issued a warning to Guns N' Roses fans ahead of next month's 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.

But with just one month to go before the big gig, concert promoters MCD have released a list of banned items that fans are not permitted to bring to the venue.

Light sabers, sky lanterns and selfie sticks are among the prohibited items, as well as tridents, iPads, food, animals and backpacks.

In an official statement, MCD said: "All the above items will be confiscated and will not be returned, Anyone resisting confiscation of restricted items may be evicted.

"Only pocket sized camera are permitted for personal use only. Cameras with detachable telephoto lenses will not be allowed through arena entrances."

MCD also warned that crowd surfing and moshing will not be permitted and fans found taking part in such activities "will be removed from the venue without a refund".

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.

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