Big Four: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax to Perform Together
The rumors have been floating around for a while and the demand of fans has been around for 25 years… Finally the Big Four, the biggest names in thrash metal, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax, are to perform on the same stage for the first time. Starting June 16 in Warsaw and continuing June 19 in Prague at the Sonisphere Festival all your thrash metal dreams will come true.
Lars Ulrich of Metallica said “Who would have thought that more than 25 years after its inception, thrash metal’s big 4 would not only still be around and more popular than ever, but will now play together for the first time…what a mindfuck! Bring it on!”
“It’s about fucking time this happened,” says Slayer’s Kerry King, “and about time the fans finally get what they want. This is fucking awesome.”
Scott Ian of Anthrax had this to say: “People have been talking about these four bands playing together since 1984. That’s twenty-six years of expectation!! And the thing is, I believe not only will we live up to the expectations, we will shatter them! No other four bands as influential as the four of us have ever done this. Imagine if THE BEATLES, STONES, THE WHO and ZEPPELIN had done shows? Or SABBATH, PRIEST, MAIDEN, MOTÖRHEAD? Well, I may be getting into some rarified air here but as a fan, that’s how big I feel this is.”
“This is a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity for heavy metal fans to see the four greatest heavy metal bands in American history back together on one stage,” concludes Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine. “If there are any heads left at the end of this festival that haven’t banged, they don’t belong there.”
