Have you seen this amazing photo of a young Michael D. Higgins at Slane concert?

The picture is being shared everywhere and the general consensus is that we have a deadly President.


That year, the Slane line-up included In Tua Nua, UB40 and Santana.

A certain Bob Dylan was the headliner, and he was joined by Bono and Carlos Santana for the encore.

And among the assembled revelers that day was a certain President Michael D. Higgins.

Look at him soaking up the sun in his jeans!
