It was horrific weather though which I don't think helped. Loads of bands on that day sounded pretty bad.

Since Sonisphere 2014 is supposed to be the celebration of 40 years of rock music at Knebworth it would be great if some of the bands that are supposed to be part of that celebration were announced today.

Well I'm about to go to the cinema. When I get back I expect the announcement to have been a good one!

There's been far too much talk of Limp Bizkit and not enough talk of Chas n Dave.
I could probably handle LP if they shared the stage with CnD for a rockney/rap metal mashup.

Isn't it a celebration of previous Sonispheres already?

Some scientists are now saying that it is possible to get internet on your phone. You should check every 2 minutes while in the cinema. This is a way to ensure that you make friends with your fellow cinema goers.

Gary Numan
The Pretty Reckless
Motley Crue as part of farewell tour
Coheed and Cambria
Incubus
Machine Head
Lamb of God
Soulfly
The Allman Brothers
MGMT
Deftones

That's my guess! Would be reasonably happy with that.

Volbeat added to Soni Italy eh? I know they're playing Download but think they have a chance at SoniUK now?

I really hope so. That's the one band at Download so far that I would really love to see.

Volbeat were absolutely amazing last time and my favourite find from 2011. I'd love to see them again.

I believe Motley Crue are making a big deal of announcing their farewell tour at an event in LA at the end of the month. Would still expect to have them at Soni, but don't think they'll spoil their own announcement by announcing one gig over a week before the rest. Could be wrong though.

Anyone else think Slash may be a bit of a suprise announcement tonight? In the studio next month, so there'll be new stuff to promote and AFAIK Alterbridge haven't announced any dates beyond the end of June, so Myles would be free to join up for festivals in the 2nd half of the summer.

I have to agree. They hold no interest for me and would take up a good spot.

But apparently the Sonisphere organisers aren't basing their entire lineup around "What bands does CherryInHove" want to see, so I suppose they could have some bands that others like.

Would love Slash to be added.

Agree with the comments re: Motley Crue. If they are to be added it wont be tonight due to their big announcement forthcoming.
