In 2010, the Big 4 of thrash metal - Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth & Anthrax - shared the stage for the first time ever. Those shows were in Europe.
In 2011, the bands hit the States. The Big 4 perform live this April in CA for the first time ever together in the USA. See the trailer below and to learn more about the amazing story of how the Big 4 went from playing basements & backyards to the biggest stages in the world, pick up a copy of GET THRASHED: THE STORY OF THRASH METAL. The film features the music of the Big 4 plus interviews with members of all the bands + much, much more.
