The Big 4 Indio Am I Evil Jam Videos

The Big 4 concert videos in Indio, CAThe Big 4 America show featuring thrash pioneers Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth invaded Indio, CA. The show featured a reprisal of the Big Four jam on Am I Evil from the 2010 concert. Check out the Big 4 jam video featuring members of all bands from the California gig & bang your head!

One year later and the Big Four US tour continues to be in great demand by the heavy metal community. A mini version of the tour ripped through America last year as Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer teamed up for the American Carnage tour. I saw the Carnage show before Anthrax joined the tour with Testament and it was unbelievable. However, as much as I love those bands they aren’t going to get that big crossover crowd to their shows without Metallica on the bill.

I am starting to feel sorry for the guys in Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. I haven’t seen or read an interview with any of those guys in the last twelve months which didn’t include a question about a Big 4 America tour. They all give the same answer and continue to tell metal fans that the ball is in Metallica’s court. So what are they waiting for?

Ironically the Big Four will tour again this summer overseas. The Indigo Big 4 show will be the only show on American soil this year. Most of the bands continue to say that they think America will get a full tour but nothing has been agreed upon or at least released to the public. With Metallica and Megadeth talking about recording new records in the near future and Anthrax getting to release new music, a 2012 summer tour to promote everyone’s new projects makes a ton of sense to me.

America will get a few nibbles of the heavy metal big four this summer. Megadeth will tour the country as part of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival. Slayer will tour with Rob Zombie and Exodus for a handful of dates in the United States this summer. Unfortunately Metallica and Anthrax have nothing booked in America this summer. I’ll be checking out the Slayer and Zombie show in Reading, PA so check back this summer for a full review.

So in the meantime enjoy the jam and continue to get excited and angry at the same time with the real possibility that the closest you will ever get to seeing a Big 4 concert in your lifetime is through videos. Although Metallica will have their entire show from the Indio Big 4 concert available for purchase on the Metallica website which is actually pretty cool.

And yes, only Dave Lombardo could get away with wearing a Hawaiian shirt to a thrash jam.
