Metallica announce headlining Sonisphere Poland with Slayer, Anthrax and Mastodon!

Metallica recently posted the following message about Sonisphere on their website:

"We are now entering the June portion of the “random tour announcement” derby and today's installment is one that is particularly exciting for us as we are proud to tell you that we will again be headlining the Sonisphere Festival, now embarking upon its second year in existence.

The first show of the traveling festival will be on June 16 at Bemowo Airport in Warsaw, Poland and joining us are some longtime friends...Slayer, Anthrax and Mastodon!

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Thursday, December 10. Go to and choose the country you are interested in for more info on how to purchase tickets. All shows are general admission.

Additional Sonisphere shows will be announced in the next week, and in the meantime you may even want to consider checking back here in a few hours for some more tour updates both in Europe and Latin America (hint, hint)."

The band have also announced the following shows and judging by the comments above there may be more yet to come:

11 - BELFAST Odyssey Arena
12 - BELFAST Odyssey Arena

The official Sonisphere announcement is tonight at 6.00pm GMT.
