The Big 4 In Indio!

The Big Four - Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth will be playing a one day festival at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, CA (near Palm Springs) the weekend after Coachella. No, it isn't Vegas, but it is certainly close enough for this kind of epic jazz.

Yes folks, for the first time ever on American soil, the four titans of thrash metal - Metallica (boo), Megadeth (yay!), Anthrax (sorta yay!) and Slayer (YEAH!) will be performing one gigantic full length show.

Afterwards we can all go hit the casinos!

I'd say replace Anthrax and Metallica with Enslaved and High On Fire and I am there!

Take away Metallica's 2 hours, split it among the remaining bands, and I'm there.

I've seen every band above at least twice with the exception of Anthrax...whom I have never seen.
I like Slayer the best live out of all four of them. Metallica was good to but they're....Metallica,. I would've like to have seen Slayer back in the day before Tom lost a lot of his voice. He can't quite get the "AHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhoooooo" in Angel of Death anymore.

I'm finally de-lurking! Araya can't headbang anymore, but he's occasionally doing the Angel of Death scream again:

Having seen all of these bands in one way or another in the last 3 years, I say HELL YEAH! Hopefully they'll do a real tour with this lineup. For all the Metallica...not-fans, well, your loss. Those guys are on-fucking-fire live these days.

@ihatesnow welcome from lurker land!

@weatherman my first shows were with cliff. he was THE BEST.

Metallica has actually gotten better live over the last few years, they started doing more of their older material instead of just turning them into a 10 minute medley of their best material, followed by country songs and ballads.
