Sonisphere Festival returns with Iron Maiden & Metallica

So, it looks like Sonisphere Festival is making a return to Knebworth after all in 2014 following months of rumours. They have just announced that the festival will be co-headlined by Iron Maiden who will be performing their Maiden England World Tour set and also Metallica who have announced they will play a ‘by request’ set.

Lars Ulrich of Metallica has said: “Iron Maiden are a big reason that Metallica exists in the first place. Although we haven’t played together on the same day since 1988, this is the closest we’ve come for 25 years, and for all our fans who share the same love for Iron Maiden as we, the band members do, this will hopefully amount to what many rock fans would consider a dream bill.”

Expect more to follow to add to this solid line up and tickets announcement but this is great news if you love classic metal.
