Download Organisers Confirm Whitesnake, Leppard Performances
We first broke the news yesterday – now Whitenake and Def Leppard’s appearances at Download 2009 have been announced officially.
Confirmed as a second main stage headliner alongside masked metallers Slipknot are Def Leppard, who return to Donington Park after a 23 year gap, having played Monsters Of Rock in 1986.
Joe Elliott and co. will be joined on the bill by very special guests Whitesnake who make their way back to Donington for the fourth time, following a world tour with Def Leppard last year.
Also announced are the recently reformed nu-metallers Limp Bizkit who will make their Download Festival debut, and Orlando heavy metallers Trivium, making their third Download appearance.
These all join Slipknot, Mötley Crüe, Korn, Pendulum, The Prodigy, Devildriver and Dragonforce at this year’s Download Festival, 12-14 June 2009.
Tickets for Download are on sale now from www.downloadfestival.co.uk
Close to 100 bands are set to appear on this year’s bill. Weekend tickets cost £135.
