Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman

Story by Jack Foley

TOM Morello: The Nightwatchman will play Hard Rock Calling in London’s Hyde Park on Saturday, July 14, 2012.

He will join headline act Bruce Springsteen as well as John Fogerty and Lady Antebellum.

Other additions to the weekend line-up include Karima Francis, The Dirty Youth, Lawson, Ryan Sheridan, The Night and Dylan LeBlanc.

Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman is the solo project from the Rage Against the Machine/Audioslave guitarist.

The Nightwatchman is Morello’s acoustic/folk alter ago and is a politically inspired solo project mixing acoustic melodies with his legendary electric guitar riffs.

Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman has released four studio albums and one live album and this summer marks his debut solo performance at Hard Rock Calling.

Other exciting additions across the weekend include hotly tipped Karima Francis, and fresh from their tour with Korn, Brit rockers the The Dirty Youth are added to the bill.

London-based teen heartthrobs Lawson are also confirmed. The band have been busy touring with The Wanted, Will Young and Avril Lavigne, and are causing a stir across the country with their debut single When She Was Mine.
