SONISPHERE, Knebworth, 8-10 Jul: Having previously announced Slipknot and ‘X-Factor’ favourites Biffy Clyro as headliners, Sonisphere bosses yesterday announced that thrash metal’s ‘big four’ – Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – will co-headline Friday night at the UK edition of the touring rock festival next summer. It’s the first time they have all appeared on a bill together over here, Although they performed together at many of the travelling festival’s European shows last year, only Slayer and Anthrax made it to the UK.
