Having established itself as the ‘Best New Festival’ at the 2009 UK Festival Awards, Sonisphere will be a three day event over July 30, 31 and August 1st.
Prior to playing a few selected dates next summer, Maiden are currently working on a new album expected to be released late next year. Bruce Dickinson took time out to comment:
“Knebworth has been the home of so many legendary concerts going back many years it really will be a privilege to play there. We enjoy the camaraderie of playing great festivals and are very much looking forward to getting back out to do some shows next summer and, as it will be over two years since we played the UK, we will certainly be looking to deliver a memorable and spectacular night for our fans!”
