Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax Big 4 announcement will be for one US concert?

In what some metal fans may deem as a let down, we can exclusively reveal that the Big 4 announcement for tomorrow will consist of Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax performing only one show in the USA. It will not be a tour, a mini tour - just one show. A one time destination event. Rumors have run rampant over cities which would host the event (as a tour stop) and the cities mentioned the most have been Los Angeles, CA; Pittsburgh, PA; and Columbus, OH. My bet is that the concert ends up being close to 3 of the 4 bands headquarters which is located in California.

A new rumor has the Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA as hosting the event. The same field which hosts the annual Coachella festival. Sounds like it will be a big day for metal not limited to only the Big 4. We will have the official word when it is released by Metallica representatives tomorrow.


  1. I don't think there will only be ONE show. There will be multiple. Megadeth posted on their Twitter account "METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH, ANTHRAX: 'Big Four' U.S. Dates Coming Soon!"
    So I would imagine since Dates is plural, there will be more than one.

  2. Metallica stated on Facebook: "Like" this page to stay updated on all details for the first and only United States "The Big 4" appearance."

    But was later removed. So we'll see tomorrow.
