The first announcement for Sonisphere 2014 has been made with Iron Maiden and Metallica being announced as co-headliners. It will be both bands only UK show of 2014.
Team Sonisphere made the following comment:
“During our two year absence we’ve continued to believe in and work hard on Sonisphere. We said in 2013 that if we had the right line up then we would be back, and that’s exactly what we’ve got in 2014. The omens were obviously on our side when we secured the two biggest and best metal acts of all time in the year that also brings the 40th anniversary of the first concert at Knebworth.
Our excitement at being able to offer Metallica and Iron Maiden on the same bill for the first time ever has been hard to contain. To do so in a year of great celebration for the iconic venue is very satisfying. Sonisphere 2014 is going to be a legendary year!”
Early Bird tickets are priced at £170 and are available now. Fans who purchase tickets online will also be invited to vote on the set list Metallica will play at the show as part of ‘Metallica By Request’.
