As fans of certain things in entertainment, we are at times found waiting for moments which may never occur, and at times left grasping at rumors to fill the void for what we badly yearn for. Without being in the industry, we can’t possibly understand the creative differences, or ego-fueled split ups that come to be between musicians, actors or even athletes.
Many times we don’t see a resolution, and our “what-ifs” stick with us for the rest of our lives. We may never see Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men” again, we also may never see Peyton Manning wear number 18 for the Indianapolis Colts, but sometimes, as rock groups like The Eagles have shown us, hell can freeze over. Yes, for all of us who swore it could never happen, mega-rock band Van Halen continue ..click here to read moreconcerts, David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Music, Rock, van halen

One of the greatest heavy metal albums of all time, Megadeth – Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying turns 25 this year. Following in the trend of performing full classic albums on tour, Dave Mustaine has revealed plans to play the entire Peace Sells album live in 2011. Oh hell yeah!
“We’ve already had people talk to us about doing that, and I told our Manager that I’m totally interested in doing ‘Peace Sells’ for a 25th anniversary, but I don’t want to do it all year like we did with ‘Rust in Peace’.
Four names that bring metal fans into a frenzy would definitely be Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax and Metallica. Some of us have been lucky enough to see either one, or all of these bands.How many of us have seen all four at the same time? Thanks to technology these days, I was lucky enough to attend a viewing of The Big Four concert on June 22nd with my brother Eric. It’s because of him I have listened and loved these bands, and it is also because of him I was lucky enough to catch such an amazing piece of history.
The Big Four concert may be out of movie theaters but you can still catch the performances online in HD. Sonishphere performances from Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax have made their way to the Internet. Watch the Big Four concert videos and relive one of the greatest nights in metal music history.
Metal fans went nuts with the announcement of the Big Four Tour featuring Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, and Metallica. Joy soon turned to anger for Americans when it was announced that this was a Europe-only tour. Metal heads fear not as the Big Four Tour is coming to a movie theater near you.
It was announced this week that the entire Big Four concert featuring Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, and Metallica will be simulcast on theaters across the UK and America. The Bulgarian leg of the tour will be beamed live on June 22 to a movie theater near you. The entire show will be broadcast live and in HD. The live movie simulcast for a heavy metal concert tour like this in America is truly unprecedented.
I wrote a blog a few weeks ago about Megadeth’s recent set at the Revolver Gods award show. Megadeth gave fans an opportunity to pick their set list. Following in the trend, are fellow thrash legends Testament. Could this be the new trend in resurrecting the concert business?
I was intrigued when I first saw Megadeth do this. There is nothing worse than getting a horrible set list from your favorite band. Iron Maiden did this a few years ago when they played mostly new songs with a few classics on tour. It can be a tricky thing when you talk about bands with deep catalogs. One of my all-time favorite bands, Testament is taking this to a whole new level for their upcoming North American tour.
