The Big Four...kind of true
 
[url]http://metallica.com/index.asp?item=602847[/url]

You've been posting and chatting about it for months and we're here now to confirm it . . . Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax will all share the same stage for the first time EVER! Look for the four of us at the Sonisphere shows in Warsaw, Poland and Prague, Czech Republic on June 16 and 19, 2010 with a few more of the festival dates still in the works, you can be sure these shows won't be the only ones.

In the words of Lars: "Who would have thought that more than 25 years after its inception, thrash metal's big 4 would not only still be around and more popular than ever, but will now play together for the first time...what a mindfuck! Bring it on!"

What more can we say??

Aren't they all headlining on different nights though? If they are, can you really call that a Big Four gig?

The Sonisphere festivals in Czech Republic and Poland are single day events.

Oh ok. So then it is kinda a Big Four thing. One step closer to a tour maybe? Aahhh...

This could turn out similar to how Canadien Carnage turned out. They set up a few shows, and the entire metal community is in uproar, wanting it to come to their town. They realize, we could make a shit load of $ off of this, and decide to do it. Still, too many egos to deal with, don't think it will happen. I'll honestly be surprised if both shows go by without a problem.

Scott Ian: “People have been talking about these four bands playing together since 1984. That's twenty-six years of expectation!!! And the thing is, I believe not only will we live up to the expectations, we will shatter them!! No other four bands as influential as the four of us have ever done this. Imagine if The Beatles, Stones, The Who and Zeppelin had done shows? Or Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Motorhead? Well, I may be getting into some rarified air here but as a fan, that's how big I feel this is.”

Mustaine: “This is a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity for Heavy Metal “Fans” to see the four greatest Heavy Metal “Bands” in American History back together on one stage. If there are any heads left at the end of this Festival that haven’t banged, they don’t belong there.”

Hope it does go well and turns into a tour. 4 of my fav bands all at once would be great.

Maiden + the big four?

That's a pretty sweet festival.

edit: different sonispheres nevermind.... that would be too good to be true

That could still happen. There are five more Sonisphere's to be announced, and a couple of them are two day events, and therefore require two headliners.
