Metallica to play new Knebworth festival - Telegraph
Looks good so far
Seeing metallica on 26th at the MEN arena & hope to get to Sonisphere as my brother likes Linkin Park.
I want to go and see metallica here this festival sounds great but. Instead im going to save and go to the States and catch the 2nd leg of the US Tour hopefully.
Maiden and Metallica on the same bill, that would be awesome and well worth the £125.
Tickets have gone on sale today
Looks like this will be the beat the crappy line up at Download this year.
Just had a text ...Masterdon (new one on me ) ? and Alice in Chains also confirmed
Mastodon are brillinat.
Really heavy sludgy metal.
Download's lineup just got amazing.
I'm going to Download!
Def Leppard and Whitesnake, you'd be n00b not to.
Maiden aren't playing Sonisphere.
Are you serious ?
what the hell have Def Leppard done in the last 10 years ? Pyromania and Hysteria were great albums ,but everything after has been crap
edit.. oops, i think
like metallica have made really good music int he last 10 years lol.
had to cancel going to download and glasto this year as the wifes got a baby on the way to be born mid june. so this sonisphere might be a good one to go to.
so far got sonisphere and shrewsbury folk festival, a bit different lol.
Couldn't agree with you more (Sorry, I had to do that.)
I'm a Bit disappointed with Def Leppard being named as headliners to be honest, here's hoping for some more Metal bands to be announced for download, although saying that Kiss were highly enjoyable last year.
Congrats on the baby mate ,well done to the wife , i know what your saying about Metallica , but if you have a look at the thread "best album of 2008" ,alot of people site Metallica's as their best album of last year
I may download the album see if there back to there best, legally of course!
Yeah i definatley recommend giving it a listen a great album Metallica back to there best.
Yeah Death Magnetic is one of the best albums of last year and one of metallica's best albums.
And Def Leppard don't need anything new, hell just play the whole "Vault" album live and that would do !
The article on the OP mentions Maiden as linked to Sonisphere along with Linkin Park and Guns N Roses.
yum yum machine head for sonisphere now.
Sonisphere festival announce Machine Head, and Alice In Chains - plus Avenged Sevenfold, Thin Lizzy, and The Sword
Buy Tickets | Official Sonisphere Festival - Knebworth United Kingdom 1st & 2nd August, Metallica, Linkin Park, Anthrax, Nine Inch Nails
Oooo - day tickets now available eh? Knebworth is right on my doorstep & I haven't seen NIN live for about 16 years....tempting. Not sure I could stand through an entire Metallica set though...
Just Won 2 Weekend Tickets To Sonisphere
Well done mate, very envious Great sig by the way, Deftones are my favourite band, get well soon Chi
the lineup is one of the best Ive ever seen! NIN, Metallica, Mastodon & Machine Head in one festival!
Seeing as I cant afford to go I officially hate everyone on here that will be going
Trying to get Reading Friday tickets at the moment to see Deftones but not having much luck
Hopefully they will tour soon
Machine Head pulled out, same as Fear Factory
NIN, Metallica & Mastodon should be good though
Machinehead pulled out, Sonisphere stiffed them and tried to put Limp Dipstick on before them
Why did FF pull out?
Not sure why, think it was something to do with legal issues or new album issues
Sucks though, only seen Fear Factory once and would love to see them again
Well done Tone ,how did you win them ?
FF pulled out to record some new material (always the most irritating and disresepctful excuse a band can give). Also not playing
Thin Lizzy (singer/guitarist walked out on band!)
The Sword (tired from all the touring, the poor lambs)
Machine Head (thrown toys out of pram as Limp Bizkit put above them)
Anthrax almost cancelled too after sacking their new singer, but they managed to get John Bush back in the band for a one off gig at the last minute
I'm still looking forward to the weekend, but all these cancellations have hardly made the festival value for money
