Erm…yeah, that’s about it. It’s also been confirmed by Andy Copping, the festival’s promoter, via his Twitter account, so apparently it’s legit.
Have Shinedown confirmed they’re playing at Download tonight? Fuck those guys! I can’t deny it..what a nice little unexpected treat for you!

We’ve got nothing else to add about Shinedown. That’s how exciting this news is. Please continue to carry on with whatever it is you were doing before we wasted 30 seconds of your time with this.
