The Big Four Tour Coming To US Movie Theaters

Big Four TourMetal 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.

The Big Four tour website has links to movie theater locations in the UK and the USA. I was stunned to see how many places in America will be broadcasting the show. I expected a handful of independent movie theaters here and there to have it, but there are 8 full pages of listings on the website. As long as you live near a big city, you can see it. There are a few IMAX theaters listed, although that doesn’t necessarily mean the show will be on the IMAX screens but how cool would that be?

The Big Four Tour website reads, “The Big Four: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, presented by NCM Fathom and BY Experience will feature nearly 4 hours of live performances and behind-the-scenes from the Sonisphere Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria.”

This is tremendous news for metal fans like me that grew up on these four thrash legends. I never expected this tour to ever take place, nor did I expect to see it in America. The sad news here is that this probably means the tour will never hit the states. Slayer and Megadeth will be playing the American Carnage Tour through September which eliminates this year. There is a possibility they could try this next summer. Yet anything can happen when you talk about these four bands and lineup changes in Megadeth and Anthrax so who knows what next year will bring. It is a nice thing to think about, but I don’t have a lot of hope that the tour hits the states.

It really amazes me that it took four decades to put a tour like this together. I was lucky enough to see three of the four bands together on the Clash of the Titans bill 20 years ago. Considering that it took 20 years to put together something like this, I hope the bands don’t waste time preparing for a US swing. Some people say that metal is dead in America as a live show. I disagree. Give us tours like this and you will be turning thousands away.
