Roger Waters and The Who to Headline First Concert in Worldwide Series


ORLANDO, Fla., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- London's Hyde Park will be rockin' this July as Hard Rock International celebrates its 35th anniversary in true rock 'n' roll style with a concert series that will go down in music history. The Hyde Park Calling festival, a two-day concert event, featuring rock legends Roger Waters and The Who, will kick off Hard Rock's Ambassadors of Rock Tour, a series of concerts spanning the globe.

Hyde Park Calling, a two-day festival held on July 1 and 2, will be one of London's premier music events, with more than a dozen top bands performing on two stages. Legendary rocker Roger Waters will headline the July 1 concert, which promises to be a show to remember, as the Pink Floyd front-man will perform the hit album, "Dark Side of the Moon," among several other fan favorites. Waters will also be joined by Texas.

On July 2, timeless rock legends Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry will take the stage with The Who, along with chart-toppers Razorlight. Additional artists will be announced and tickets for the festival are available at http://www.hydeparkcalling.co.uk .

In addition to renowned bands and an on-site Hard Rock Cafe, the festival will include a market area, performance art, a healing area and a "chill out" zone. Hard Rock Cafe London will also feature a star-studded celebrity V.I.P. party on Friday, June 30 to celebrate 35 years of Hard Rock.

This is what I call summer time fun! Too bad it's on the other side of the pond. I've seen The Who, but have never seen any members of Pink Floyd, would be nice to see Roger Waters, though I'm a bigger Gilmour fan :)
