  EXCLUSIVE: AEROSMITH TO PLAY LONDON CALLING FESTIVAL IN JUNE?
3rd March 2014



keith wilfort

Aerosmith could well be heading to play in London as part of the London Calling festival which is to be held at it's new site in Clapham Common between the 27-29th of June.

It will replace the Hard Rock Calling festival which has changed it's name since the burger chain dropped it's sponsorship. Live Nation decided to move from Hyde Park to Clapham Common after complaints about the noise levels from local residents in central London.

It was reported in the business section of the Evening Standard last week that Michael Rapino, chief executive of Live Nation Entertainment, is making a rare UK stop on the back of figures showing the US concert promotion giants revenue grew by 11% to $6.5 billion.

Live Nation will be announcing the line up very soon but the Evening Standard's City Spy understood that Eric Clapton, John Mayer and the legendary rockers Aerosmith have been tapped up to headline the shows. 45,000 fans are expected to turn up for each day.

Aerosmith play at the Download Festival on Sunday 15th June followed by the Hellfest in France six days later on 21st June. When Aerosmith last played at Download Festival in 2010 they also added a date in London at the O2 Arena.

MetalTalk believe that Aerosmith will play London Calling on Friday 27th June as they have a date in Kiev in Ukraine on July 2nd, World War III permitting, and the band are taking a rest on all their European dates of between 5-7 days for each gig.

It is probable that Aerosmith will set camp in London for the duration of the UK and French date.

More news as we have it.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
