Sonisphere announces first two headliners

Iron Maiden and Metallica will co-headline the Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth on 14th-16th July 2014. The dates are confirmed as being both acts only UK dates in 2014.

Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson said:

“We all grew up in England well aware of the importance of the legendary concerts at Knebworth, and scarily it all seems quite recent! Without being clichéd, it really is an honor and privilege to return to play there with the purpose of celebrating some of the finest moments in British rock history from inspirational bands like Pink Floyd, The Who, Zeppelin, The Stones and Genesis.

This will be the last concert of our ‘Maiden England’ Tour and it is very fitting to end a long and hugely enjoyable tour in our own back yard. We have tweaked the ‘Maiden England’ set list a bit to make it more representative of our whole 80s era and to give the fans something a bit different, especially as this will be the last of our three tours with an historical perspective. If you are there on the day it is highly likely that you will hear some of these songs played live for the very last time ever. So on an occasion like this, a celebration and the end of a chapter, you can be sure we will do our utmost to give our fans one hell of a show and go out with all guns blazing.”

Early Bird Weekend tickets for Sonisphere 2014 go on sale today (Monday 2nd December) priced at £170 (Limited availability).
