Slane-bound rock legends The Rolling Stones have shown their compassionate side ahead of a gig in Poland tonight.
The band have announced they will be donating a portion of their fee from the concert to the families of the 26 Polish pilgrims killed in a coach crash in France on Sunday.
Doubt was cast over their Warsaw date after the Polish government announced three days of national mourning after the crash, which has caused artists like Rod Stewart to cancel planned concerts.
But promoters Avila say the show will go ahead. A minute's silence will be observed for the crash victims.
It is not known exactly how much money will be donted to their families.
Meanwhile, tickets for their formerly sold-out Slane show on 18 August are back on sale - but probably not for very long!
