The Big 4, consisting of Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax will be playing in the UK for the first time at 2011’s Sonisphere Festival. The Big 4 will exclusively headline July 8, 2011 at Knebworth. More after the jump.
The bands are just as excited as the fans.
Dave Mustaine of Megadeth has said “The Big Four Concerts are the most important, most exciting event to happen in the history of live concerts in our genre, and perhaps the entire music industry. I am glad to be a part of this enormous celebration of thrash, speed, and good ole heavy metal!”.
Scott Ian from Anthrax said “Merry early Xmas present for us… more BIG 4 shows!!! The shows we did together with our brothers in Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth were not only the high point of 2010, but also some of the best shows Anthrax have ever played. Getting to share this with our friends in the UK will be amazing”.
