Although this will be the fourth time that the Californians have played the festival, this set will be the first time that a full album will have been played.

Aerosmith are one rock's most infamous and revered bands. Fronted by the iconic partnership of frontman Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry, their generation spanning career has seen them sell in excess of 150 million records, making them the best selling American rock band in history.

Their headline performance at Download 2014 will be their first on UK soil since 2010. Speaking on their return to Donington Park, Joe Perry said "It's been too long since we've been to England and we're sincerely fucking charged to be coming back! See you there"

Joining Aerosmith in ending what is already set to be an incredible weekend, will be the heavy riffing, arena conquering Alter Bridge.

Two days ago, Avenged Sevenfold, one of the mightiest forces in modern rock, were announced as the first headliner for Download 2014.

Friday 13th June 2014 will mark a momentous occasion in the history of Avenged Sevenfold as they continue their tradition of spectacular Download performances, by becoming headliners for the very first time, not just at Download, but at any UK festival.

Over the course of the last 14 years, Avenged Sevenfold have grown to be one of the biggest names in heavy music. Consistently releasing ground breaking, genre defying music, the band have written and recorded some of the best and most acclaimed rock albums of the 21st Century, each different to but equally as brilliant as it's predecessor. Their breath-taking live shows have garnered an unshakeable reputation as one of the most must-see bands in the world.


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.

Tickets are available now from all the usual outlets.





NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
