Hard Rock Calling: Rod Stewart + Stevie Nicks + Adam Ant + Rumer + Train + Lighthouse Family + Mike & The Mechanics + Barenaked Ladies + James Walsh + Cashier No.9
Now in its sixth consecutive year, Hard Rock Calling returns in 2011 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hard Rock.
After rocking the stage at Hard Rock Calling 2009, Las Vegas' finest The Killers return to headline the opening night of Hard Rock Calling 2011. The Killers last rocked the Hyde Park stage at Hard Rock Calling 2009, and after deciding to take last year off, have now reunited for a new record and this special show which will encompass hits from their three studio albums including much-loved hits Mr Brightside, Somebody Told Me, All These Things That I’ve Done and Human.
Grammy Award-winning, all-American rockers Bon Jovi will be headlining at Hyde Park on June 25th. With over 120 million album sales under their belt and more than 2,600 concerts in over 50 countries, the band knows how to get the crowds going and are sure to make it one of the most memorable nights in Hard Rock Calling's 6 years on the festival circuit.
Living legend Rod Stewart has confirmed that he will headline Hard Rock Calling on Sunday 26 June. With a career spanning nearly half a century, seven number-one hit singles and a further 27 top-ten albums in the UK alone, Rod Stewart is cemented in history as one of the biggest selling artists of all time, and is now set to grace the stage in what marks his first appearance at London's Hard Rock Calling 2011.

Best loved for his unmistakable voice and incredible versatility, Rod Stewart's career has spanned over four decades, making him one of the music world's longest serving artists. With his most famous hits including Maggie May and Tonight's The Night, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. Able to turn his hand to anything from rock to folk to standard classics, Rod's gravelly voice and distinctive interpretations have made him one of our most famous and well-loved artists.
Rod Stewart tour dates
Ethereal faerie vocalist with Fleetwoood Mac and highly successful solo artist in her own right.

The leader of iconic New Wave/post-punk group, Adam and the Ants, and one of the most original and innovative stars of the '80s. He's had 10 Top 10 singles to his name including Ant Music, Stand & Deliver and Prince Charming.

Adam Ant tour dates
Former Brit Award nominee Rumer, aka Sarah Joyce, is an authentic and emotional songwriter. Rumer's classic yet contemporary sound has made comparisons with the late Karen Carpenter, while her melodies are modern-day Bacharach or Elton John.
Rumer tour dates
The award-winning San Franciscans, Train, are known for delivering memorable songs that capture the listener’s imagination. This particular talent has seen them achieve unprecedented radio and social media traction, with the eight-time Grammy nominees heralded as a standard bearer of riveting, roots-based pop around the world.
Train has sold more than ten million albums worldwide, thirty million tracks worldwide, with numerous platinum/gold citations on their mantle, 3 Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honours and nominations.
Train tour dates
Vocalist Tunde Baiyewu and keyboard player Paul Tucker formed Lighthouse Family in 1993 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne after meeting while studying at university. Their 1995 debut album Ocean Drive sold more than 1.8 million copies (six times platinum) in the UK alone. In a stellar run, following Ocean Drive with Postcards From Heaven and Whatever Gets You Through The Day, they sold over 10 million records worldwide. Lighthouse Family had numerous top 10 singles including Lifted, Ocean Drive, High and Raincloud. Having pursued individual projects, Paul and Tunde reunited in 2010.
Lighthouse Family tour dates
After nearly 10 years and a massive reunion world tour with Genesis, Mike Rutherford recently joined forces with one of the UK's most successful R&B acts Andrew Roachford, and Canadian-born actor and singer Tim Howar for a new generation of Mike & The Mechanics. Originally formed in 1984, Mike & The Mechanics was a side project for Mike Rutherford that would go on to sell over 10 million records worldwide. The band featured vocalists Paul Carrack and Paul Young (formerly of Sad Café), and developed a rich catalogue of hit after hit including Silent Running, All I Need Is A Miracle, Over My Shoulder and the massive worldwide hit single The Living Years.
Mike & The Mechanics tour dates
Men, not ladies, they are perhaps best known for their UK no.5 and US no.1 hit, 'One Week'. Their melodic tunes and prolific songwriting originally earned them the nickname 'The Canadian Housemartins'. Known for their wacky and quirky lyrics, dedicating songs to Yoko Ono and New Kids On The Block, the four-piece Toronto men have matured their sound in recent years, perhaps making them more of a 'Canadian Crowded House'.
They have witnessed line-up changes, births, marriages, deaths and near-death experiences in addition to their professional and musical accomplishments, yet are still going strong. They remain a top concert attraction with impeccable musicianship.
Barenaked Ladies tour dates
AKA the frontman of indie troubadours Starsailor. Older, wiser – and a father – he’s looking forward to “doing something different for a while”, setting off in a different ship but touching people once again, which could include anything from writing more songs with Suzanne Vega or fulfilling a lifetime ambition to write with Shelby Lynne. And making what promises to be a very adventurous solo album, via Pledge Music.
James Walsh tour dates
A cheap sequencing package, a broken acoustic guitar and a head full of Nick Drake and the Beta Band were the jump off point for the electronic folk pioneer. The analogue charm of Danny's low-key, chilled beats with lo-fi roots has been likened to a chilled out Postal Service.
