DIAMOND HEAD, AIRBOURNE, ARCHITECTS Confirmed For U.K.'s SONISPHERE

DIAMOND HEAD, AIRBOURNE, ARCHITECTS and WEEZER have been confirmed for the U.K. edition of the Sonisphere festival, set to take place July 8-10 at Knebworth.

Commented DIAMOND HEAD guitarist Brian Tatler: "DIAMOND HEAD have been given the fantastic opportunity of opening for the 'Big Four' [METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX] at this year's Sonisphere festival, Knebworth on Friday 8th July. This will be DIAMOND HEAD's biggest-ever show and myself and the other band members are very excited and looking forward to what will be an historic event.

"Knebworth is one of those venues you only dream of playing. I saw LED ZEPPELIN there in 1979 and never imagined that one day I would be on that stage, it proves the saying 'anything is possible'! It also means I get to see my friends in METALLICA and MEGADETH once again which is always fun; I owe both Lars Ulrich and Dave Mustaine a beer."

The festival billing is shaping up as follows:

METALLICA
SLAYER
MEGADETH
ANTHRAX
BIFFY CLYRO
SLIPKNOT
AIRBOURNE
ARCHITECTS
DIAMOND HEAD
IN FLAMES
MASTODON
MOTÖRHEAD
PARKWAY DRIVE
WEEZER
