Monsters revived

Back before Knebworth became the focus for a 'who can get most people in a country garden' contest between Robbie Williams and The Oasis, it was home to the Monsters Of Rock Festival. Now it's back. Sort of.

Sonisphere is a pan-European event, and the British leg will be at Knebworth. Assuming the planning has been done properly and there's the demand and it doesn't all end up being cancelled.

Amongst those hoping nobody reminds people about flinging plastic bottles of wee at the stage are Metallica and Linkin Park.

Er, I thought Monsters Of Rock was held at Donington Park?

So did I. And I think I'm right.

Knebworth was more the province of the Stones, Zeppelin and Floyd in the '70s, and some of the above (plus many others less reputable) for that Definition of the New Establishment charity show in 1990.

Yes. You're both right. I'm confusing my country seats.

More specifically, you're confusing them with race tracks.
