Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax - Big 4 US radio special set for April

Envision Radio Networks has announced the "Full Metal Jackie Big Four Radio Special," a two-hour radio program featuring music and interviews with members of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax as they prepare to come together with the highly anticipated "Big Four" tour.

The first-ever show on U.S. soil will be at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California on Saturday, April 23. The California "Big Four" date follows the successful 2010 European tour of the same name and marks the first time that the four metal giants have ever collectively shared the stage in the USA.

The special will feature exclusive interviews with the principal figures from each band, including Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Dave Mustaine (Megadeth), Kerry King (Slayer) and Scott Ian (Anthrax) surrounded by the sonically crushing highlights from their collective catalogs that defined a generation and continue to shape the metal genre.

The "Full Metal Jackie Big Four Radio Special" will be broadcast on participating US radio stations between April 6 - 24.

Contact a US rock radio station near you to see if they will be running the show.

In her audio blog on, radio personality Full Metal Jackie has released information regarding a contest for The Big Four. She is sending a winner and a guest to the concert in California with airfare, hotel, concert tickets, and a signed bass guitar.
