2 MINUTE SILENCE PLANNED FOR SLIPKNOTS PAUL GRAY AT THIS YEARS SONISPHERE

*TWO MINUTE SILENCE IN REMEMBERANCE OF PAUL GRAY TO FALL OVER KNEBWORTH*

*BOOK OF REMEMBERANCE TO PAY RESPECT TO FALLEN HERO AT SONISPHERE *

SONISPHERE will host SLIPKNOT’s first UK performance since the tragic passing of bass player PAUL GRAY, at KNEBWORTH on July 10th, where they close the APOLLO ARENA stage. The band would like to invite all the maggots in attendance to join them in paying their respects.

 

At 2pm on the Sunday, a two minute silence, led from the SATURN ARENA stage, will fall over the whole arena and all the stages at KNEBWORTH, so fans can pay tribute to SLIPKNOT’s number 2.

 

Fans will also be able to leave a more personal tribute in the book of rememberance that will be left at the Metal Hammer signing tent for the duration of the weekend. The giant, leather-bound book will be open to those who wish to leave their own obituaries, thoughts or drawings, from midday to midnight each day. The book will be passed to SLIPKNOT at the end of the festival on Sunday night.

 

SONISPHERE KNEBWORTH takes place 8th – 10th July 2011 at KNEBWORTH HOUSE. For tickets and more info go to www.sonispherefestivals.com

Editors notes:

 

SONISPHERE Festival was established in 2009 and received the award “Best New Festival’ at the 2009 UK Festival Awards. That year the festival visited six different European countries, taking in Holland, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Finland and England, making it the world’s largest internationally touring festival. 2010 saw SONISPHERE make metal history by bringing metal’s BIG 4 – Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – together for the first time, and taking yet more awards, with Festival promoters Kilimanjaro Live and K2 awarded European Promoter Of The Year at the 2010 European Festival Awards, the Finnish event receiving the Best Festival In Finland Summer 2010 in one of the country’s biggest newspapers, Ilta Sanomat, plus a shortlisting at the Digital Music Awards for the live cinecast of the Bulgarian SONISPHERE. It also sold its millionth ticket as a festival in 2010, an impressive milestone for such a young festival.

 

Now, just two years after its inception, SONISPHERE Festival has doubled to twelve European countries and has become the world’s foremost festival tour. This year headliners across Europe include Iron Maiden, Metallica, Linkin Park and Slipknot, with the three day UK event at KNEBWORTH boasting headline sets from The BIG 4, BIFFY CLYRO and SLIPKNOT, leaving no doubt that SONISPHERE is the world’s greatest international festival.
