After the announcement earlier this week that Ozzy Osbourne will be one of the three headline acts at Download Festival 2018, it can now be revealed that Avenged Sevenfold will also be topping the bill.

The three-day festival takes place between 8th and 10th June 2018 at the spiritual home of Metal in Donington Park, Leicestershire. Tickets are available now right here.

Avenged Sevenfold will return to Download Festival to give a momentous Friday night headline performance.

From the genre-defining Metal-core album 'City Of Evil', the hard rock UK number one 'Hail To The King' through to the latest progressive Metal sounds of 'The Stage', Avenged Sevenfold have an epic history of modern Metal classics, a stage show to make Rammstein jealous and a proven track record of smashing anything that comes their way.

Avenged Sevenfold said:

"We are more than honoured to be a part of this legendary show and line-up. Being asked to headline Download for the second time is a career highlight. We would like to thank our UK A7X family."

Download Festival Promoter Andy Copping told us:

"A real career highlight of mine was giving Avenged Sevenfold their first ever UK festival headline slot, and I'm thrilled to welcome them back.

"You don't often see bands like Avenged Sevenfold top the charts, but much like seeing them live, they're not to be underestimated."

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
