Over the years, Slane Castle welcomed acts such as U2, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, David Bowie, Queen, REM and many more. Check out photos from Metallica concert in Paris.

Top Tips

Make sure you follow our guidelines below so you’re ready for the presale and general sale.

  1. Get a Ticketmaster account or update your current account. Log into your Ticketmaster account here.
  2. Add your card details, these will be stored in your account so you won’t have to add them during the onsale. Remember we take debit and credit cards.
  3. Update your address. Make sure you have your latest address added to your account and add your Eircode. Don’t know your Eircode? Find it here.
  4. Log into your account before the show goes on sale, this way you won’t have to worry about log in details and you’ll just concentrate on getting tickets.
  5. Only use one browser/tab. If you open multiple pages, the Ticketmaster system might think you’re a bot and block you from making a purchase.
  6. If possible log into a secure reliable Wifi connection. Wifi on your commute is great for browsing but not always reliable when trying to purchase tickets during a busy onsale.
  7. Don’t refresh. We know it might be tempting, but don’t refresh the page. If you do, you’ll start the process all over again so you’ll risk not getting tickets at all.
