According to the AC/DC fan site Crabsody In Blue, The Mirror newspaper in the U.K. (Irish edition) reports that AC/DC have been asked to headline next summer's spectacular in Slane, Ireland.Bosses are banking on the group to sign a contract for a massive one-off show before 90,000 fans and help it become Ireland's music Mecca again. Secret negotiations have been taking place to lure the band to Ireland for a rare appearance. Slane suffered a huge blow over the past two years when EMINEM cancelled a sold-out gig in 2005 and no act signed up this year. A source revealed: "At this stage AC/DC are the number one target for Slane 2007. The show would be a huge hit and help Slane become the talk of the music world again. "AC/DC are one of the biggest selling bands in history and they would definitely sell somewhere as big as Slane out." AC/DC have sold over 160 million albums since they launched in 1973. They are also negotiating outdoor concerts in London, France and Germany next summer.
