Are RHCP going to play Sonisphere next year? We know from Blackie Dammett’s posts on Facebook that they are discussing playing festivals here and the organizer of Sonisphere has stated to NME that they are in fact in talks with the band about appearing at the festival:
‘We’re talking to Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters for 2012’ says Sonisphere organiser
Stuart Galbraith also names dates for next year’s Knebworth event
Sonisphere organiser Stuart Galbraith has said that the festival are in talks with both Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as a host of other acts, for headlliners of next year’s event.
Speaking at the official festival press conference, he also confirmed that the festival would be running over the weekend of July 6-8 in 2012 and that tickets for next year’s event would be going on sale on Wednesday (July 13), with prices capped at this year’s rates for a limited number of tickets.
Asked if he would consider booking either Foo Fighters or Red Hot Chili Peppers for 2012, he said: “They’re both two that we’re talking to, amongst a whole list of others. I also think we could have Green Day and Blink-182 here, but none of those are confirmed.”
Thanks to Jason for the heads up on this!
