The money a big four tour in the US will generate will be huge and the bands and their management are fools if they don't realize this. I'm sure for that reason alone they will all be able to clear their schedules

Fuck the whole "economy sucks right now" excuse. I've been to enough shows over the last few years to know that doesn't stop the people from coming out. You don't think fans are gonna do whatever possible to see a tour like this? Give me a fuckin break
Im not going to go in depth with my political views like I do on other threads, I just have to say that the economy sucks is not an ecuse, the economy does suck,you may be able to afford to go to shows but some others can't.

I do agree that the economy sucking wont stop the fans from going to this.

It's Metallica I think they can sell out regardless of the set.

Something else to consider is that AEG puts on Ozzfest too. AEG doesn't have venues they own compared to Live Nation. Considering Live Nation is partnered with Mayhem Fest, Iron Maiden, Uproar, Cruefest, and that they now own ticketmaster & virtually every large amphitheater, stadium, and the Clear Channell radio market, etc, AEG would have to work with Live Nation for this tour to be as successful as possible. The tour would sell tickets but Live Nation would want the lion's share of the $ and the minute they figure out this tour will likely hurt their own summer tours they will demand even more $ or simply refuse to do business with AEG.

Whenever you look at what AEG owns (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ansch...edirected=true) you can see that a destination event is the easiest and probably most financially secure option for them. If it was a tour Live Nation would leave AEG with little $ after all is said & done because Live Nation would make sure to take enough $ to make up for their losses their own metal tours would receive when trying to compete with the Big 4.

I'm sorry, but are you freakin' retarded? No offense or anything, but this is Metallica we're talking about. Considering a fairly big portion of the crowds they bring only know the singles from the self-titled album and that the hardcore fans (such as myself) would be there no matter what, there is absolutely no doubt that they'd sell out. You'd have to be crazy to think otherwise.

As people have already mentioned, they played Master of Puppets in its entirety already in 2006. So doing that again would be just rehashing old ideas. Plus, while people are complaining about playing the Black Album, think about this: They're already going to play Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, and Sad but true, potentially the worst songs on that album. So if they're going to play those songs anyways, they might as well play some of the best songs from that album like Holier than Thou, Unforgiven, Of Wolf and Man, etc. etc.

Plus, it doesn't matter what competition is out there or how bad the economy is, this tour wouldn't have any problem selling tickets. In fact, any tour with Metallica would sell out in a couple of days anyways. The majority of their Death magnetic 2nd leg US shows sold out within a day of going on sale before any support acts were announced.

Machine Head
Exodus
Overkill

Other Stage:
Mastodon
Down
The Sword
Gojira

Not saying that would happen, but if it did it would make a cool tour even more cool & give it some variety too. Put this tour in 15 football stadiums or Racetracks & everyone has a good time & all the bands will get exposure & make $.
I think you've gotten brainwashed by the amount of festivals there have been in the US over the last decade. This just isn't a good idea at all because it's just too much. It's The Big Four they don't need any other bands to play, I think it's just be those four and that's it. What more do you really need?

When this tour happens they need to focus on the quality of the bands not the quantity.

None taken. It may still sell out, being that they're Metallica and all, but playing that album would definitely turn a bunch of people off.

Marlay Park, the big venue bands usually play in Ireland now, has been booked for five days in August and noone knows for what yet, so Im hoping against hope Metallica play there with the big four. The past decade they played at least every two years.

Am I the only one who thinks this thing is getting a little over hyped? Just about anyone who can call them self a metalhead has seen 3 of the 4 separately, and this tour/show is just gonna be a huge clusterfuck or way too expensive.
