Sonisphere brings together Big 4 at Knebworth House gig
Date Posted: 14/12/10
Sonisphere has announced that it is bringing the Big 4 to Western Europe to headline its 2011 festival at Knebworth House.
The Hertfordshire venue will see Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax together in the UK for the first time, entertaining those booking nearby London hotels.
Under the title of the Big 4, the thrash legends will take centre stage on Friday July 8th, and will mark a major moment in metal by appearing at the gig together.
Lars Ulrich, drummer for Metallica, said all the bands feel like they are 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," he stated.
Ulrich added that he is "beyond psyched" that the first Big 4 show in Western Europe will take place at Knebworth, where so many unique and special gigs have happened in the past.
Other bands taking part in the three-day event, which runs until Sunday July 10th, include Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro and world-renowned Slipknot.
