Iron Maiden and Metallica, the two biggest metal bands on the planet, will make history this summer when they co-headline the Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth, the very first time both bands have appeared together on a British bill, and the ONLY CONCERTS EITHER BAND WILL PLAY IN THE UK IN 2014.
Both Metallica and Iron Maiden headlined their first ever Knebworth concerts under the Sonisphere banner and now these giants of the world stage return together to fly the Sonisphere flag once more; bigger and bolder than ever before. For the first time ever fans will have the chance to see both bands come together to head up what will surely make for one of the most historic festival bills in heavy rock music.
British legends Iron Maiden will bring their immensely successful ‘Maiden England’ World Tour to a spectacular finale.
Also headlining will be one of the biggest selling rock acts of all time, Metallica. Formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and vocalist and guitarist James Hetfield, Metallica are one of the most influential and successful rock bands in history. Next summer’s performance by Metallica will see the band delivering a ‘Metallica By Request’ interactive setlist spanning their entire career.
Making this event even more special is the fact it marks 40 years of rock concerts in the legendary grounds of Knebworth House. Sonisphere 2014 marks the return to Britain of the Sonisphere Festival which for the past five years has been the biggest pan-European festival, playing to audiences of over 1.5 Million fans.
