More Bands Confirmed For Sonisphere
A further 11 bands have now been confirmed for Sonisphere, which happens at Knebworth Park from July 6-8.
Here’s the list:
Black Stone Cherry
Glassjaw (performing the whole of the Worship & Tribute album)
Hundred Reasons (playing the Ideas Above Our Station album in its entirety)
New Model Army
The Getaway Plan
The headliners for the festival are Kiss (July 6), Queen (7) and Faith No More (8).
In other Sonisphere news, promoter Stuart Galbraith has reacted to criticism of Queen bringing in American Idol contestant Adam Lambert to front the band at the festival.
Galbraith said: “If people are looking for a Freddie Mercury show, then they aren’t going to get it. But I think the Queen songs are huge, I think they fit perfectly with the Knebworth environment and perfectly with Sonisphere. I think it’ll be one of the best performances we’ve seen from a headliner, it’s the only show in the world they’re doing. It’s a huge coup for us.”
