We know that we saw AC/DC post on their official website that they were headlining Reading & Leeds Festivals 2009 but it appears that it is Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead and Kings Of Leon that will be headlining the Main Stage at the festivals formerly known as Reading Rock this summer.
AC/DC are rumoured to be headlining Hard Rock Calling on June 27 2009 – the day after their Wembley Stadium show – with Bruce Springsteen expected to headline June 28 2009 – the day after his rumoured Glastonbury headline appearance.
It’s not too much of a surprise that there is no metal headliner after the announcement of another major metal summer festival. There are only so many massive rock and metal bands around and after Download, Sonisphere and Bloodstock have taken their pick, you’ll probably be left with Mentallica and Lez Zeppelin.
