The Big Four – Am I Evil (Live June 22, 2010)

In September 2009, it was reported that Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich was attempting to assemble a tour with thrash metal’s “The Big Four” — Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax — together on one bill.

The “The Big Four” took the stage together for seven shows in the Sonisphere Festival concert series. The first show together took place in Warsaw, Poland on June 16, 2010 and the last took place in Istanbul, Turkey on June 27.

On May 5, 2010 Metallica announced that the live show in Sofia, Bulgaria on June 22, 2010 would be transmitted via satellite to over 450 movie theaters in the U.S. and over 350 theaters across Europe, Canada, and Latin America. The show also provided the historic moment of all current members of The Big Four (with the exception of Tom Araya, Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman) sharing the stage to perform the song Am I Evil by Diamond Head.
