The Irish Times: 75,000 fans expected at Slane Castle for Metallica concert
Seventy-five thousand fans are expected to see Metallica perform at Slane Castle on Saturday, June 8th, and at least 10 per cent of them are likely to have travelled from abroad. “I think I’m correct in saying there is even somebody from Chile coming. Metallica have a very loyal following,” Henry Mount Charles, owner of the Co Meath venue, said today. Other fans of the veteran American heavy-metal band are coming from North and South America, Australia and New Zealand, he said, adding that it was an endorsement of Slane’s reputation, given that the band are playing dozens of other venues on their WorldWired tour.
