Slane Castle will be rocked next summer as Metallica are set to play the legendary Co Meath venue. Owner Lord Henry Mountcharles confirmed the news in an announcement at the castle this morning. “It’s a big production, it’s brash, it’s real rock n roll,,”
James Hetfield, Robert Trujillo, Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett will rock the grounds on June 8 as part of the WorlWires tour, fulfilling their promise to Irish fans that they would play here in 2019. The heavy metal legends will play the Meath venue on June 8th. Fans can buy tickets from this Friday at 10am.
They previously revealed that they would be staging a European stadium tour from May to August 2019. Drummer Lars also revealed the band had planned to play Ireland in 2018 but “the arena would not work due to the stage layout and the amounts of pyro we had planned”.
It has been over a decade since they played Ireland. Slane Castle didn’t host a concert this summer but last year Guns N’ Roses proved a huge success selling out the 80,000 capacity venue in a day. Thin Lizzy were the first rockers to play Slane Castle for its very first concert in 1981.
