Now in its fourteenth year, Download is the biggest event of its kind in the U.K. Last year's Download was headlined by freak show maestros Slipknot, sci-fi rockers Muse, and 'hottest band in the world Kiss.
Speaking exclusively to eonmusic via gigsandfestivals at the Golden Gods Awards last year, Kiss' Gene Simmons said of their spectacular prop and pyro filled Download appearance; "you saw those lifts at the end and the fireworks; we spent a million bucks just bringing that stuff to give the fans more. Everything costs a fortune, but we always make sure we give the fans the best show we can.”
