So, a friend on facebook made a gag about Queen already having visitied the south - "playing Slane in '86". Hilarious stuff I'm sure you'll all agree, but check out the video he linked up....

Sweet baby Christmas! I know it's a bit rare they came onstage at 6pm (would they have played under cover of darkness at all?!) but can you imagine how incredble that show that would have been? Not long after Queen at Live aid (regarded by many as the greatest perforamnce of all time) and just as they'd released the likes of 'One Vision' and 'A Kind of Magic'. An incredible band at the peak of their powers in front of....well that crowd looks somewhere in the region of forty billion people

ATL is keepeing it local by choosing Pigstock over Slane next weekend, but that's not to say we don't have strong, teary feelings for the Co. Meath event. For a start, Slane 95 - well that was the happeist I've ever been.
