"This really will be the last hurrah!"

Lead singer Danny Bowes added: "It's somehow quite fitting that we'll play our last show in the UK, and having gone there as kids to see the Stones and Led Zeppelin, to do it at Knebworth will be a real thrill.

"Bring it on."

Sonisphere itself will be closed by Metallica with a full set on Sunday, August 2.

Also on the Knebworth bill are Nine Inch Nails, Bullet for My Valentine, Heaven & Hell, Alice In Chains and Limp Bizkit, who were added only last week.
