Looks like The Big 4 metal tour will be making its way to the United States!
Who are The Big 4? Oh, only the greatest metal bands of all time — Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax — touring together on the same bill! Back in June, the thrash metal giants did a two-week stint in Europe, using footage from one of the shows for a DVD/Blu-ray release titled The Big Four: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria. At the time, it seemed that this would be a once-in-a-lifetime event, but now the tour plans to expand to other parts of Europe this Summer AND into the United States, too!
Teaser images have appeared on the bands’ respective websites and Facebook pages, promising news for an upcoming U.S. tour. One image has The Big 4 pick logo with the backdrop of the American flag; the other image has the design background of Metallica’s …And Justice For All album cover with the words, “America, your prayers demands were answered!” with the four respective band logos and the Big 4 logo beneath it, with the promise of more details to come tomorrow.
A new Facebook page for the tour was launched today at Facebook.com/TheBig4, so head on over and give it a “Like” to follow its feed.
We’ll be back tomorrow with more details of the U.S. tour, and you can bet your ass I’ll be seeing a show or two on this tour!
