METALLICA SLANE CONCERT 2017

metallica slane concert 2019
It is a measure of Metallica’s appeal that a band from the extreme end of an extreme genre could even attempt to play a venue as big as Slane Castle.

Metallica were formed in LA in 1981 - the same year as the first Slane Concert. Metallica got an award in 2000 for the best live performance of Whiskey in the Jar. Lifelong Thin Lizzy fans, Metallica regularly play band hit Whiskey in The Jar and dream of jamming the rock classic at Slane Castle. The metal icons have released 10 studio albums over their nearly four decades as a band, the most recent of which, Hardwired... to Self-Destruct, topped the charts across the world in 2016.

Last year Metallica drummer Lars revealed in an interview that they had considered playing in Ireland this year but they had to pull out because, “the (Dublin) arena would not work due to the stage layout and the amounts of pyro we had planned”.

Metallica will be supported by Ghost and Bokassa and two more bands, and as is traditional at Slane, one of those will be an Irish band to open on the day after gates at 1pm.

Ghost
Ghost emerged in 2010 with a three-song demo full of Sabbathian doom metal mixed with gothic horror themes that became an underground sensation, earning ample praise from Darkthrone frontman Fenrizand a variety of other underground metal tastemakers. This got their debut album Opus Eponymous released by two important indie metal labels, Rise Above in Europe and Metal Blade in the US.

BOKASSA
Let us introduce you to BOKASSA! A tempestuous hybrid of neck-bruising riffs, punk-rock attitude, hardcore undertones and lashings of metal! Describing themselves as ‘stoner-punk’, Norway’s Bokassa have created a sound that not only plagues the inside of your brain but is simply an irresistible hybrid of excellently crafted sonic cuts that are designed to be washed down with a frosty cold one.
