July 8, 1984: Bob Dylan took to the stage on the first and last ever Sunday concert in Slane. Bob Dylan’s set was over two hours long showing his commitment to the art. To top it all off, Bono from the world class band U2, who was living in the Castle, accompanied Bob Dylan for the encores. However, this is not what Slane concert ’84 is best known for. Concert goers arrived to the sleepy village of Slane on Saturday, in anticipation for the concert the next day.

Nonetheless, drink-fuelled youths rampaged through the village, setting light to three cars, wrecking the local Garda station, smashing the windows of local businesses and creating terror in the little village. 18 concert goers were injured, 12 Gardai were injured when the Garda station was attacked with rocks and set alight and unfortunately two young men drowned in the river Boyne.

Bob Dylan was supported by:

  • In Tua Nua
  • UB40
  • Santana
