WTF? The Big 4 To Play A Small 1: Only One U.S. Show Announced

You SuckMetal fans and followers will remember that yesterday we posted news that The Big 4 (meaning Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, and Slayer) would be making a major announcement today via their Facebook page regarding a U.S. tour dates. Everybody assumed, justifiably so, that it would be the announcement of a major Big 4 U.S. tour. Boy, were we way off, and the resulting rampage of fury and anger from metalheads across the country should make the so-called Big 4 hang their heads in shame!

It turns out that the “major” announcement was that the 4 bands would be playing a show. That’s “a” show. As in one. Singular. Uno.

The Big 4 will be playing their one show in Indio, California on April 23, 2011, at the Empire Polo Club and…

Wait, what? A club? The Empire Polo Club doesn’t seem to have seating charts in many places in the short Google search I did, but one report I found mentioned a capacity of no more than 1,000*. I cannot vouch for the reliability and accuracy of that information, but if there is any validity to it, why choose such a lame venue for one show?

What is this business of doing one show anyway? The bands are marketing this as their “first and only” show together in the United States. These four bands are part of the biggest movement in metal history, all contributing important music to the development of the thrash metal movement, which has inspired countless other sub-genres since those days. Their namesake is legendary.

Their marketing cry of “America, your demands have been answered” really translates to the fact that there will be hiked-up costly merchandise at the show, the tickets will be outrageously expensive and undoubtedly difficult to obtain, and they’ll release another DVD from this single event.

Dear Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer: Fuck you, guys. If you REALLY want to answer the demands of your fans, cut the shit and get on the road.

[*UPDATE: Someone contact me to verify that the venue can hold way more than 1,000, and they usually have concert events there outdoors.]
