THE HISTORY OF SLANE CASTLE CONCERTS 1981 – 2013

Slane Concert Image
July 22, 1995: R.E.M played Slane just days after bass guitarist and backing vocalist, Mike Mills’ appendectomy. There was no stopping R.E.M and their set went down in history. This concert also saw Oasis take to the stage in Slane for the first time, to be followed by them headlining in 2009.

R.E.M was also supported by:
  • Luka Bloom
  • Spearhead
  • Belly
  • Sharon Shannon
  • Oasis

  • Sadly, two young Dubliners tragically lost their lives when they tried to gain free entry into the venue by swimming to the back of the stage via the river Boyne. Following this terrible incident the concert venue came under scrutiny for its safety and for the next two years the venue was silent. During that time, the venue underwent changes to make the concert arena safer and in 1998 the concert returned.
