Aerosmith have been confirmed as playing Calling Festival this summer.

The two day event - previously known as Hard Rock Calling - has relocated to Clapham Common after several years in Hyde Park and one at the former Olympic Park.

The US rock band will play the outdoor festival on Saturday 28 June 2014.

Thunder and Joe Bonamassa are also on the bill.

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said: "It's been far too long since we have performed in the UK. We can't 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."

Live Nation's vice president of promotions, Toby Leighton-Pope, said: "We're looking forward to bringing the new look event to Clapham Common, one of London's premier outdoor locations."

A headliner for Sunday 29 June  is to be announced later.

Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9am.
