The first time Aslan's Christy Dignam and Joe Jewell played at Slane was opening for David Bowie at Slane Castle. They have returned to Slane to play Boyles Of Slane a number of years ago and have always wanted to return.... and they will do so on Friday, 25 January 2019.
"The 'Some Songs & Stories' show gives us the opportunity to return to Slane and have some fun playing Aslan songs along with some (David) Bowie tracks who we love, and who we opened for in Slane back in 87," says Christy Dignam.
Childhood friends and Aslan co-founders, Dignam and Jewell will perform a memorable show of new material, numbers from Aslan's extensive back catalogue and cover's of tracks by bands that have inspired them including Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie and ballads including 'The Green Fields of France'.
While music will be the focus of the gig, Christy and Joe will also banter with the audience retelling the stories behind some of their songs and regaling the audience with tales from Aslan's' many years on the road and almost definitely their Slane Castle gig.
This show promises to be a magical evening in the company of two legends of the Irish music scene and is sure to sell out fast.
