Metallica announce appearance at Sonisphere Festival in the UK on 8 July, and France on 9 July


We are happy to announce that Sonisphere Festival 2011 will be bringing together METALLICA, along with SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX – collectively THE BIG 4, for the first time in the UK to headline on Friday 8th July. METALLICA drummer LARS ULRICH explains:

“As soon as the Big 4 gigs started rolling across Sonisphere Festivals in Eastern Europe last summer, we all felt we were part of something special. The vibe within the bands was more than anyone had anticipated and the vibe with the fans was so next level, it completely blew our minds . . . there was no way this should not happen again!!! So I am beyond psyched that the first Big 4 show in Western Europe will take place on the hallowed grounds of Knebworth, where so many unique and special gigs have happened over the years. There is simply no better venue for a European round two of the Big 4!! Put your dancing shoes on, this is gonna be fun!”
