Anyone who caught one of the Big Four shows over the past couple of years would agree that they were truly once-in-a-lifetime events. As many fans are still hoping the Big Four -- Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth -- will come their way, Slayer's Kerry King believes the bands will likely now go their separate ways.
In case you missed it (video here,) Dave Mustaine joined Metallica on stage at the Fillmore in San Francisco for five songs on the final night of their 30th anniversary celebration. Mustaine recently talked to Powerline about the show, including his earliest memories of Metallica.
On the final night of Metallica's four-show 30th anniversary celebration, Megadeth leader and former Metallica guitarist Dave Mustaine joined his former bandmates onstage for five songs. You can check out video of Mustaine performing "Phantom Lord," "Jump in the Fire," "Metal Militia," "Hit the Lights" and "Seek & Destroy" below.
Last night, at the second show of their fan-club only 30th anniversary celebration, Metallica dusted off yet another previously-unheard track from the Death Magnetic sessions. You can listen to "Just a Bullet Away" below.
In case you missed the tour in 2011, Anthrax, Testament and Death Angel are giving you one more shot to see them next year. The bands have announced a handful of dates for 2012, which you can check out below.
As we reported yesterday, Megadeth have received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for their song "Public Enemy No. 1." Megadeth will go up against Dream Theater, Sum 41, Foo Fighters and Mastodon in the category.
Earlier this month, Megadeth performed at the Maquinaria Festival in Santiago, Chile. Pro-quality footage from the performance has been posted online, and you can check out select clips from the band's November 12 show below.
