Slayer: Knebworth-bound

More heavyweight names have been added to Sonisphere 2014!

Headliners The Prodigy, Iron Maiden and Metallica will be joined by Slayer, Alice In Chains, Airbourne, Gojira, Ghost, Mastodon and Karnivool!

“Us four guys are seriously fired up and chomping at the bit to bring the Black Dog Barking Tour to Knebworth,” says Airbourne‘s Joel O’ Keefe. “With monumental metal juggernauts Iron Maiden and Metallica coming to shake Knebworth to the core along with Bruce Dickinson also announcing it will be the last concert of the ‘Maiden England’ tour this is a rock’n’roll event in time that can’t be missed.”

“We’re very excited to be playing once again at Sonisphere, particularly as this year has us joining our longtime friends in Metallica,” adds Alice In Chains‘ William DuVall. “It should be a fun ride for everyone – both on and off the stage.”

Slayer legend Kerry King keeps it short and sweet, adding, “Great to be back at Sonisphere this year! Always a giant party!”

Sonisphere 2014 takes place July 4-6 at Knebworth Park. Tickets are on sale now from, with a £50 deposit scheme now up and running.
