Sonisphere Laugh Off Metallica's Glastonbury Billing

(Classic Rock) Sonisphere promoters have responded to confirmation that headliners Metallica will also be playing at Glastonbury by poking fun at the rival event.

They've published a spoof setlist that contains a series of puns emphasising Glastonbury's roots as a working farm - adjusting the title of classic Metallica tracks including Enter Ploughman, Some Kind Of Tractor and The Call Of A Culled Ewe.

James Hetfield and co last night confirmed long-standing rumors that they'd play Worthy Farm's Pyramid Stage on June 28, a week before headlining at Knebworth alongside Iron Maiden and The Prodigy.

Sonisphere bosses said: "It was only last week that the band were officially asked. They immediately asked Team Sonisphere what we thought about releasing them from their exclusive appearance at Sonisphere.

"But remember Glastonbury is already a sell-out, and so the only chance to buy a ticket to see Metallica in the UK is at Sonisphere." more on this story
