Post More "Big Four" shows coming......
Lars & James last year before the first Europe show: "No there will never be anymore shows..."

Lars & James upon announcing thee "one and only" North American show: "There will only be ONE show for the US..."

and now as the O'Jays tune "For The Love Of Money" plays in the background............



Following last month's first U.S. "Big Four" concert in Indio, California on April 23, a second U.S. show featuring METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX has been confirmed for September 14 at the new version of the legendary Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York City.

METALLICA stated, "A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the desert [on April 23]. . . we felt the enormous love and support, so we just had to find a way to make one more Big Four show in the States happen. Enter New York . . . We can't wait for a night in the Bronx as our second American show and for those of you who love fun facts, this will also be the second live music event hosted at the new ballpark."

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday (May 6) at 10:00 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Metallica fan club members and Yankees season ticket holders will have their own pre-sales on Wednesday (May 4).

Ticket prices are as follows:

* Front general-admission floor: $225
* Back general-admission floor: $175
* Reserved lower-level seats: $119
* Upper-deck reserved seats: $90

Additional Ticketmaster and facility fees will be applied.

METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told RollingStone.com after the Indio show that an East Coast date was coming, along with possible gigs in the South and Midwest, although he doubted a full tour would happen.

The all-day event in Indio featured the so-called "big four" bands of the Eighties thrash metal scene performing together on a U.S. stage for the first time ever in their 30-year careers.

A series of similar shows last summer in Europe was wildly popular, leading to demand for a U.S. version. The "Big Four" package will also head back to Europe this July.

All four bands were presented over the weekend with awards for sales of a hundred thousand copies of a "Big Four" live DVD which was released late last year.

Yeah. Metallica can be so lame sometimes.
Fuck that. I feel Dave Mustaine is still in it for the fans... well at least more than Metallica is.

Everybody´s in it for the $$

Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer have had a great chance of playing in front of massive audiences which they could´ve never healdined playing a solo gig.

Metallica clearly pushes the envelope for everyone, and all the bands are getting along the victory car pretty well.

I find it great, to give these bands a chance to play big shows and make tons of $.

Just hope that they release some good new material to prove they´re still worth it!
