James Hetfield Reveals Bizarre Sonisphere Plan
He plans on getting Metallica to break up onstage before announcing that he’s gay to compete with the he greats who have performed at Knebworth in the past.
James Hetfield was recently asked how Metallica were going to compete with legends such as Led Zeppelin, Queen and Deep Purple; all of whom have rocked the stage at Knebworth in the past.
“To top them will be difficult but we’re going to try by breaking up onstage before I announce that I’m gay,” laughs Hetfield in a chat with the Sonisphere official festival guide. “Seriously, how do you top those bands? You don’t, you just go out and do your best at what you do. There are a lot of legends that have played at Knebworth and we are very honoured to be mentioned in the same sentence as any of them.”
Metal Hammer are offering one lucky winner 2 VIP tickets to Sonisphere and a chance to meet one of the greatest metal bands of all time – the mighty Metallica!
