THE BIG 4 COME TO THE UK FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!

SONISPHERE BRINGS METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH & ANTHRAX TO HEADLINE FRIDAY NIGHT
It is with immense pride and pleasure that we can confirm that SONISPHERE will be bringing together METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX in the UK for the first time in history to headline the Friday night.

Last summer saw the live debut of THE BIG 4 - as this collective of Thrash legends are commonly known - marking what was possibly the most significant event in the history of metal. Fans all over Europe could barely contain their excitement, as over 500,000 metalheads bore witness to the show they thought they’d never see.

THE BIG 4 fever did not stop at Europe, as fans the world over eagerly anticipated the possibility of seeing the historical show for themselves in their own countries. Such was the demand that a live cinecast of the Bulgarian show saw over 130,000 people turn out to local cinemas, with reports of mosh pits breaking out in movie theatres across the globe. The recently released DVD of the event, which features all four bands collaborating on a cover of Diamond Head’s “Am I Evil” as well as their individual sets, has only added fuel to the BIG 4 fire, with a frenzied demand for more performances in the countries not fortunate enough to play host last summer.

Now, SONISPHERE brings the titanic combo of METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX to the UK for the very first time, at this exclusive performance at KNEBWORTH.

This sensational news follows last week's announcement of Slayer's fifth Grammy nomination for "World Painted Blood" in the Best Metal Performance category, and indicates that certainly for Slayer, 2011 looks to be as exciting and eventful as 2010 has been.

“Always excited to do big 4 shows” says SLAYER’s KERRY KING. “Now England is in line to be devastated by this heavy metal powerhouse! Can’t Fucking wait!!!”
