Soulfly at Sonisphere: 'We thought no-one would watch us!' – video
Soulfly's Max Cavalera has said that he was worried there would be hardly anyone watching his band at the Sonisphere festival because they had an early afternoon slot on Saturday (July 31).

The singer/guitarist, speaking in a video interview with NME which you can watch on the right, admitted he was scared that the metal band would be playing in front of only staff members at the Knebworth event.

"I was worried when I heard we were playing at 1pm," he said. "I thought 'We're the opening band… there's going to be 10 people here'. The early morning band that opens the day that nobody's here, only the people working are here. [It] turned out totally different."

He added: "Everybody was jumping up and down, it was a great show. We went on early but it was a killer, killer show."

Rammstein and Iron Maiden were among the bands who played Sonisphere, which took place at Knebworth on July 30 and August 1.
