Their most recent studio album, 'Hail To The King', was the band's first to hit the #1 spot in the UK and their second to top the Billboard charts in the US. Download history is sure to be made when they take their rightful place as UK festival headliner for the first time on the hallowed turf of Donington Park.
Produced by Live Nation, the world's leading live entertainment company, Download Festival has grown to be the second biggest festival in Europe. Over it's 12 years, Download has garnered the reputation of providing fans with the very best the world of rock has to offer. The Download community has become one of the most loyal fan bases in the world, establishing the festival as a destination not only for great music, but to build lifelong friendships with likeminded people.
Joining Avenged Sevenfold on the first day of Download 2014 will be none other than the overlord of all things horror Metal, Rob Zombie. After an utterly incredible performance headlining the second stage back in 2011, he will be making a welcome return, this time to the main stage, to blow fans away with what is bound to be another undeniably spectacular performance.
