Big Four of Thrash announce US show date

Well, America, our prayers have been answered…kinda.

The Big Four of Thrash – Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax – are indeed playing the United States on April 23rd at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Tickets are going on sale Friday, January 28th at 1pm EST via and they’re going to go fast because this could very well be one of the biggest shows in the U.S. this year.

My one gripe? This is the Big Four’s ONLY U.S. appearance. What the fuck? Why? All the shows they’re playing in Europe this summer and they only give America one show? Are they worried the demand for tickets won’t be high enough to warrant more performances?

Hopefully this is just a tactic to drum up more interest for a Big 4 U.S. tour but if not then I have to issue a Fail towards the organizers of this show. If you get to go then have yourself an amazing time. The rest of us will just sit back and wonder why our American bands didn’t tour more of America together.
