Slipknot have revealed that they will also be doing a live online stream of their headline set at this weekend’s Sonisphere festival. The real-time webcast of their Sunday evening performance will go live at 9pm on the band’s website http://www.slipknot1.com. “England has always been a special place for this band from the very beginning,” say the group in an official statement. “We can’t think of a better way to culminate our celebration of Paul’s [Gray] life than to share it with the Maggots at Knebworth and the millions more watching around the world. This is not to be missed.” Sonisphere producer Stuart Galbraith commented on the event by stating: “This is the first time Sonisphere Festival has been transmitted live across the web and represents yet another major stride in its commitment to harnessing the power of the internet to engage with the rock audience at large across the planet.” “Given that this is going to be such an important event for Slipknot fans the world over,” said Stuart, “we felt it only right to allow them all to share in what is set to be a historic experience, wherever they are.” For full details see www.slipknot1.com.
