Following on from Tuesday's (7th November 2017) announcement that Ozzy Osbourne is set to close the 2018 Download festival, Avenge Sevenfold have now been confirmed as the event's Friday night headliners. Taking place from 8th - 10th June at Donington Park, Leicestershire, Download is among the highlights of the festival calendar.
Making their second bill-topping appearance, Avenged Sevenfold will return to Download Festival once more, to give a momentous Friday night performance.
From the genre-defining metal-core album 'City Of Evil', the hard rock UK No.1 '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.
Commenting on their addition to the bill, Avenged Sevenfold say: “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’s Promoter, Andy Copping adds: “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.”
Tickets available now from the official Download site.
