The renamed and relocated Hard Rock Calling event takes place on June 28 and 29, with the first day also starring Joe Bonamassa, Thunder and Walking Papers. The second day’s lineup will be announced in due course.
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry says: “I’ve been so involved in writing my autobiography I didn’t realised how long it had been since we played across the big pond.
“We can’t wait to bring back some of the classics as well as some new songs from Music From Another Dimension.”
A spokesman for promoters Live Nation says: “This year is one of the most exciting on record for the Calling Festival. We’re looking forward to bringing the new look event to Clapham Common, and bringing one of America’s most iconic bands to headline on Saturday 28 June. There’s still lots of announcements to come – including a big Sunday night headliner – and we’re excited at what’s in store.”
Tickets are on sale via www.livenation.co.uk. Aerosmith also headline this year’s Download festival at Donington Park on the weekend of June 13-15.
