Slipknot are proud to announce that they will return in 2011 to headline the UK’s Sonisphere Festival. The weekend event at the world famous Knebworth site is set for Friday July 8th- Sunday July 10th.

Expect the band to bring an incendiary show to Sonisphere, as the icons prepare to honor Paul Gray’s memory and musical career with their Knebworth appearance. 

Slipknot say: “We’re looking forward to spending our summer in Europe. This tour is about us and our fans. It’s about celebrating the life of our brother, Paul and his legacy. The door is neither open nor closed. This tour is about burning down that door. See you this summer.”

The band hope you will come join them in Europe next Summer to celebrate and remember their brother, Paul Gray.

Check back soon for info on tickets and on-sale dates.
