Aerosmith To Play Download With Steven Tyler!
Aerosmith have been added to the bill of Download 2010. What’s more, that’s Aerosmith with Steven Tyler!
The boys from Boston have been in turmoil these past few months, and there’s been mounting speculation concerning Tyler’s future in the band.
At one point it seemed certain that Aerosmith would replace Tyler with a new singer.
Sammy Hagar, Chris Cornell, Billy Idol and Paul Rodgers were among the names mentioned as a possible successor to Steven.
But Classic Rock understands that the Download organisers have booked Aerosmith this year on the proviso that Tyler, and only Tyler, appears as their frontman.
Also added to the bill at Download 2010 are Rage Against The Machine.
Download takes place at Donington Park June 11-13.
At present it’s not known on which days Aerosmith and Rage Against The Machine will be appearing. But as both bands will headline, they will definitely be playing on separate days.
Our money’s on Rage for the 12th and Aerosmith for the 13th, topping the bill on another ‘Classic Rock Sunday’.
Tickets for Download 2010 are available via www.downloadfestival.co.uk
