Aerosmith have been announced as the first headliners of a new festival to be held at London's Clapham Common this summer.

Calling Festival, a new version of Hard Rock Calling, will take place in the South London park on Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29. Thunder, Walking Papers and Joe Bonamassa have also been confirmed to appear.

Aerosmith will headline the Saturday night of the festival on June 28. It will be the first time the US rockers have played in the capital for four years.

Guitarist Joe Perry said in a statement: "Speaking for myself I’ve been so involved writing my autobiography I did not realise how long it had been since we have played across the big pond. Its been far too long since we have performed in the UK. We can¹t wait to bring back some of the classics as well as some of the new songs from 'Music from Another Dimension'. We miss our UK fans. See you soon."

Some 20 more acts will be announced in coming months. Live Nation’s Vice President of Promotions, Toby Leighton-Pope, said: “This year is one of the most exciting on record for the Calling Festival. We’re looking forward to bringing the new look event to Clapham Common, one of London’s premiere outdoor locations…. There’s still lots of announcements to come, including a big Sunday night headliner, and we’re excited at what’s in store."

Tickets go on sale on at 9am on Friday (March 7) and are priced at £62.50 plus booking fee. People with south London postcodes will be able to purchase local resident tickets, which will be available on a first come first served basis for one week after general onsale.
