Guns N' Roses support acts announced for Slane Castle return
Royal Blood, Mark Lanegan and Otherkin have been confirmed as support acts for Guns N’ Roses return to Slane Castle.
The American rockers take to the stage on Saturday May 27 for their sold-out concert with their Not In This Lifetime Tour, 25 years since they last played the venue.
Speaking on Tuesday morning, Lord Henry Mountcharles said: “I am delighted with this line up. Royal Blood is a really exciting act and I am thrilled they are on the bill. The local connection with Otherkin is special.”
Brighton based drum n bass duo Royal Blood released their self-titled debut album in 2014, which went to Number 1 in Ireland. The BRIT award winners are renowned for their high-energy live show.
American grunge star Mark Lanegan’s new album Gargoyle, set for release on 28th April, has been garnering stellar reviews.
Otherkin are a grunge-pop band from Dublin, fronted by Slane local Luke Reilly. Their debut album is due out later this year.
Guns N’ Roses sold all 80,000 general admission tickets when they went on sale last December.
