The Big 4 Tour? Blech!
Seriously? There’s all this talk about Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax doing a tour together. I wouldn’t go no matter how “legendary” it might be. Let’s just face facts here (my facts!): Metallica hasn’t put out anything worth listening to since maybe And Justice for all. Slayer hasn’t released anything decent since Seasons in the Abyss. Anthrax was lifeless after State of Euphoria. Megadeth has made a good run of it in the last 5 years, but they wouldn’t be enough for me to want to see the other bands. I believe they are coming near here with Slayer in a few months. I’ll likely go and leave before Slayer comes on, just like I did last year when Judas Priest came on, I was out of there.
Now on the marketing side of this, it would be ideal if all of the egos could work it out. Every band would stand to make a lot of money…mainly by having Metallica on the bill. They sell out everywhere they play (insert easy joke here!). Money wise it’s a no brainer as long as these bands don’t actually have to speak to each other.
There are certainly other thrash bands I’d much rather see than these.
Sometimes I really miss the old days.
