Only a few Euro festival dates, but still
man... finallly the show i always wanted to see...
I'd love to see that.
Well, Ive already seen Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth together but this would be a cool show to see.
methinks there was always some tepid blood between Anthrax and Metallica realtes to a few things....
Pushead art for Metallica and not Anthrax
Neil Turbin shrieking everyone into the ditch
Fistful of Metal
Anthrax never toured with Metallica for years at the beginning... even though they would have been an obvious choice and a killer tour.... I think the reasons were that Neil was a far and away better singer than James who was insecure about his voice at the beginning. Fistful of Metal was much closer to punk-core roots than the direction that Metallica was heading. Tallica may have been a bit sensitive to this as well.... it is called east coast vs west coast
Fistful of Metal was the best thing Anthrax ever released with the possible exception of the last disc with the dude from Armored Saints (sorry I can't remember his name)
This sounds like an awesome show but I'm fairly certain I wouldn't survive it
I'd be pretty stoked if they would tour the USA too.
Each band would have less time but songs to choose from for that gig.

Clash of the Titans tour in '91? I saw the Middletown, NY show... Unreal. I was 21 yrs old and a huge metalhead at the time.
A fairly new band at the time, Alice in Chains opened up.
Ha-ha! I saw that tour in Connecticut. I'm pretty sure Alice In Chains was boo'd off stage and you could hear the audience screaming "SLAAAAAAAAAAYER!!!" over their set.
Yup, that was the show. It was killer.
I agree about the Anthrax/Metallica never touring before post. From what I understand, Anthrax was very helpful to the Metallica guy when they came to New York the first time. I understand they are friendly with each other.
I also agree that Anthrax's best thing was Fistful of Metal. After that I just went with SOD.
Cool show. Saw that in Oakland. My buddy had just taken Dave's spot in Slayer and got us passes. That night, Megadeth owned!
I believed they even shared management at the time... John somebody from New Yawk? Which makes it even stranger that they never toured at a time when these bands were newcomers and bucking the trends in music... ne changing the status quo.
Neil Turbin is one of the best unsung singers of the NWOHM. Period. Too bad the dude fell off the map. He never really did anything after Anthrax... not even a move to LA could pull his career up... and he sounds alot like Paul Stanley altho with alot more metal hysterics...
Wow, some amazing line-ups there. As for 'the big 4'.... I'll stick with the Slayer gigs forever; can't really stomach 'new' Metallica; Megadeth is sometimes still exciting and would LOVE to see Anthrax again. As much as I feel slightly dirty about saying it, I think Metallica would be the weak link.
Anthrax always puts on a great show. I think Scott Ian has one of the best right hands in metal. He is the man.
The Speak English or Die album has one of the most brutal guitar sounds ever recorded.
I couldn't find the old MTV Headbangers Ball intro footage that had this SOD and the old black & white video footage of Ford model T's and trucks crashing into each other..that would have been epic nostalgia.
