Slipknot has announced a special real-time webcast of their Knebworth performance via their website to take place during their headline set at 9:00pm GMT (4:00pm Eastern/1:00pm Pacific) on Sunday, July 10th.

To tune in visit Slipknot1.com.

The webcasting of Slipknot's historic Sunday night headline set live across the world from Knebworth, will go out live on Slipknot1.com as well as Sonispherefestivals.com. Set to be an epic and emotional occasion, this highly anticipated show will mark the band's first appearance in the UK in over two years and their first British performance without founding member Paul Gray, who tragically passed away last year.

The band said of the upcoming performance: "England has always been a special place for this band from the very beginning. We can't think of a better way to culminate our celebration of Paul's life than to share it with the Maggots at Knebworth and the millions more watching around the world. This is not to be missed."

Says festival producer Stuart Galbraith: "This is the first time Sonisphere Festival has been transmitted live across the web and represents yet another major stride in its commitment to harnessing the power of the internet to engage with the rock audience at large across the planet. Given that this is going to be such an important event for Slipknot fans the world over, we felt it only right to allow them all to share in what is set to be a historic experience, wherever they are."

The Sonisphere show on July 10 will be the last on this current tour for Slipknot, which is performing for the first time without Gray. The band's future beyond this run of shows is unclear.

Gray passed away in May 2010 from an accidental overdose of drugs, leaving behind his wife Brenna and daughter October, who was born the following August.
