Big Four to Play Yankee Stadium in September

It looks like the Big Four aren’t finished with the US quite yet. One week after their gigantic show in Indio, CA, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax have announced that they’ll be bringing their larger-than-life event to Yankee Stadium in Bronx, NY on September 14.

Metallica stated, “A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the desert this past weekend . . . we felt the enormous love and support, so we just had to find a way to make one more Big 4 show in the States happen. Enter New York . . . that’s right, the Big 4 of Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, and ‘Tallica will be in the new version of the famed Yankee Stadium on September 14, 2011! We can’t wait for a night in the Bronx as our second American show and for those of you who love fun facts, this will also be the second live music event hosted at the new ballpark.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 6 at 10 AM via Ticketmaster. MetClub members and Yankees season ticket holders will both have their own pre-sales on May 4.

    This is fantastic news. Not just because I’m a New Yorker (well mostly because of that), but also because the biggest metal tour will keep riding on. I kept hearing these amazing things about this tour and seeing some awesome pics, but the whole time I was really wondering if I would ever get a glimmer of hope to see them. Well… this may be it. Hope I can catch them even with the worst seats ever!
