KERRANG! Magazine have announced that their annual Kerrang! Awards Week Of Rock shows are back in 2009, with newly reformed Limp Bizkit one of the headline acts!

Running across five nights at London’s HMV Forum from July 28 to August 1, 2009, the Week Of Rock has gained a reputation for delivering memorable live performances from the hottest rock acts around.

Confirmed to play these exclusive shows are the recently reunited Nu Metal heroes Limp Bizkit, UK pop-punkers Youmeatsix, power metallers Dragonforce, LA rockers Buckcherry and finally, adding some glamour courtesy of Cristina Scabbia, Italian gothic metallers Lacuna Coil.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 19 at 9am and are priced at £20 in advance, apart from Limp Bizkit which is priced at £30 advance.

Last year’s Week Of Rock shows saw the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Mindless Self Indulgence and Alexisonfire tear up London in true rock style, and this year’s shows promise to be even bigger and better than before!

The Kerrang! Awards Week Of Rock leads up to The Kerrang! Awards. The 2009 ceremony will take place on Monday, August 3 at the Brewery in East London.
