ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian commented: "We are really excited to be making our only U.K. appearance at Sonisphere. We've been anticipating our return to the UK and we are honored to be a part of this amazing lineup. It's also going to be Dan Nelson's [vocals] first U.K. gig and what better way to show him off than on this show?! Leave it to METALLICA to create what I will wager is going to be THE festival of the year. See you at Sonisphere and get ready for a full-on ANTHRAX attack!!!"
AIRBOURNE added: "We are really excited to be rockin' Sonisphere '09 at such a classic venue as Knebworth House. We can't wait to get back to the U.K. again and we are honoured to be sharing the stage with the legendary METALLICA. Stand up for rock 'n' roll!"
