Two minute silence in remembrance of Paul Gray to fall over Sonisphere Knebworth

Sonisphere will host Slipknot’s first UK performance since the tragic passing of bass player Paul Gray, at Knebworth on July 10th, where they close the Apollo Arena stage. The band would like to invite all the maggots in attendance to join them in paying their respects.

At 2pm on the Sunday, a two minute silence, led from the Saturn Arena stage, will fall over the whole arena and all the stages at Knebworth, so fans can pay tribute to Slipknot’s number 2.

Fans will also be able to leave a more personal tribute in the book of remembrance that will be left at the Metal Hammer signing tent for the duration of the weekend. The giant, leather-bound book will be open to those who wish to leave their own obituaries, thoughts or drawings, from midday to midnight each day. The book will be passed to Slipknot at the end of the festival on Sunday night.

Sonisphere Knebworth takes place 8th – 10th July 2011 at Knebworth House. For tickets and more info go to www.sonispherefestivals.com
