Joining them will be the rock and soul infused Buck & Evans, Australian hell-raising rockers , Brit rockers Massive Wagons and the heavy metal stalwarts Death Valley Knights.
The Beer Garden
With no chance of rain stopping play, there will still be the chance to bask outside in London’s summer sun. Outside the entrance to the O2 will be The Beer Garden with street food stalls and more live music to entertain fans as they eat, drink and get merry.
