METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH & ANTHRAX together on Tour ?

Well, this is NOT SURE YET




One of my dreams could become reality and EVERY Thrash Metal Fan has to see this (if it happens)

The true winner of this would surely be Megadeth...I would love to see Metallica play a song together with Dave, but I think James won't let Kirk to be blown away by Megadaves abilities Mr. Green

So here's where I got the rumor from:

SLAYER guitarist Kerry King has told U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine that he has heard through the grapevine that METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich is plotting a tour that would include METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX.

Should this tour materialize, this would be the first time that the so-called "Big Four" of thrash have toured together as part of the same bill. MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX were joined by opening act ALICE IN CHAINS for the U.S. Clash Of The Titans tour in 1991, while METALLICA and MEGADETH last shared a U.K. stage at Milton Keynes Bowl in 1993.

In an interview conducted yesterday (Wednesday, September 2) in London, Metal Hammer asked Kerry if there had been a temptation to bring the co-headline tour that SLAYER are about to embark on with MEGADETH in Australia and Canada to U.K. shores.

"I think it would be cool but I knew we had this planned before all of this MEGADETH stuff started happening," said King. "They're going to Australia with us, they're going to Canada again with us. I think it would be cool for the European fans to bring that over here because, shit, we didn't even consider playing with those guys since 1990."

So could it be possible that we could get a tour that includes the "Big Four?"

"I've heard people referencing Lars," said King. "I don't know Lars that well and I haven't heard it from Lars, but apparently he's talking to somebody about it. Maybe us, METALLICA, MEGADETH (and), I think he even threw in ANTHRAX and I said in this day and age, I know we had that time together, but how do you leave out MACHINE HEAD? There's better options than ANTHRAX and that's nothing against ANTHRAX, but they've just been in pieces for quite some time and that doesn't make as much sense to me."


Blabbermouth

Way different situation. Metallica had re-hab issues and Newstead's departure. while more than a decade back Lombardo was not drumming for Slayer.

Anthrax on the other hand can't hold on to a singer/other shit.

Its unfortunate a band like Anthrax is labeled as part of this main 4. If you compiled the best of Bellodona era and had Fistful of Metal  be their only catalog and style then I'd say fuck yea. But they are more remembered for their later years.

I only mean that the latest albums (except DM and Christ Illusion) were not really the best albums, and I'm sure every fan would say the same Wink

If this actually happened, it would probably be one of the biggest tours ever. However I don't see it happening to be honest. Sure, it's possible, but with all theose egos who knows.

Evil or Very Mad   put  megadeth and slayer out of the show, THAT would be much better, and put in Exodus and Testamen, some REAL trash-metal bands

I agree with kicking Slayer out, but MegaDeth? Are you kidding? I thought we agreed MegaDeth > Metallica........ Mad http://minionsofthewatch.myfreeforum.org/about793.html

The lineup should be

MegaDeth > Metallica > Testament > Anthrax.

Anthrax are fucking awesome!

I seriously doubt this will happen, but if it did, it'd probably be the biggest metal tour of all time. The biggest problem I can see would be the order. The clash of egos there would be pretty intense.

What, people actually do not like Slayer here? Blasphemy I tells ya, blasphemy!! Slayer have and always will kick ass. There last two albums God Hates Us All and Christ Illusion are some of their best ever. Of course before that they did have some so so albums but all bands do that even IE!! Also classic Slayer kicks all kinds of ass. But I would say leave it as is except ADD Testament rather than leaving someone out cause except for recent Metallica (their old shit still kicks ass even live) it would be awesome, especially if 'Thrax got Belladonna for the show!

Guys, Rob Trujillo has confirmed that Metallica is working to get the tour in the works.

Its odd, then, that Lars would go and say shit like he did in the interview Dante posted. He really is an idiot  Mad

Lars is an asshole and a idiot, but I HOPE this tour will happen
