DESPITE the UK leg of Sonisphere not taking place at Knebworth House this summer, the touring rock and metal festival is still visiting mainland Europe in 2013.

British heavy metal legends Iron Maiden will headline the two European Sonispheres so far announced with their Maiden England greatest hits tour.

After announcing there will be no Knebworth festival this year, Team Sonisphere confirmed: “The good news is that the Sonispheres in Amneville, France, and Milan, Italy, are already on sale.

“UK fans who fancy jumping on a budget airline and seeing the mighty Iron Maiden at Sonisphere festivals in sunnier climates can buy tickets via www.Sonispherefestivals.com in pounds sterling.”

The two-day Sonisphere France festival will take place at Snowhill Park, Amneville, on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9.

As well as Iron Maiden, who headlined at Knebworth in 2010, the French line-up also includes Slayer, Korn, Motorhead and Limp Bizkit.

Also on the bill are Mastodon, Airbourne, Stone Sour, Sabaton, Bring Me The Horizon, Behemoth and Children of Bodom.

Tickets cost £90 plus booking fee.

Sonisphere Italy takes place over the same weekend on June 8 at Fiera Milano Live Rho. Tickets cost £38.50 plus booking fee.

Festival organisers added: “Watch out for more Sonsiphere European news to be announced early 2013.”

Sonisphere is expected to return to the UK in 2014 – provided a strong enough line-up can be booked.
