Big 4 Poster It's just been announced that the Big 4 - Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax will be headlining the first night of the U.K. Sonisphere on July 8, 2011.

Last summer saw the live debut of the "Big Four" — 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.

Hopefully they will get this tour together to come to the U.S.  Seeing it in the movie theater in the summer was just not enough.  I have to have my Big 4 LIVE!
