Metal God Excited Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath Leading Download

(Classic Rock) Rob Halford couldn't be happier that Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath will headline the 2016 Download festival. The Metal God graced the Main Stage at Donington this year with Judas Priest - but said the bill needed more in the way of British heavy metal.

He believes that will be remedied when Sabbath take the Main Stage on Saturday, June 11, and Maiden close the event the following night. Halford tells Metal Hammer: "It's absolutely brilliant. I'm hoping to catch that if I can. I wonder if my two pence had something to do with that?

"As much as I love the American side of metal and rock, I thought it was a bit lacking on the British side of things last year. That's been put right now. I wish we could have been on the bill too - it would have been absolutely massive to have three big British metal bands.

"But I'm absolutely stoked that Maiden and Sabbath are doing it, and I hope to grab an earful and an eyeful if I'm around at the time." Read more here.
