The word on the internet grapevine is that Sonisphere Festival 2012 has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Yes, this sucks. We love Sonisphere a lot and we love it in the present tense.

We’ve had a few confirmations from people linked to the festival but there’s no official word from the festival promoters, Kilimanjaro as of yet. We understand that an official statement will be made tomorrow, so hold tight.
