As expected, Metal’s Big 4 - Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – are headed to New York for a September 14 date at Yankee Stadium.
This announcement comes a week after the Big 4 played to more than 50,000 fans at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California – also the home of the Coachella Festival.
Here’s the official word from Metallica:
Big 4 - One Show Out West Was Not Enough
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.
ALL seats are reserved for this show and tickets go on sale Friday, May 6 at 10:00 AM via www.ticketmaster.com. Met Club members should log in for more information about a special pre-sale starting on Wednesday, May 4. Yankees season ticket holders will have their own pre-sale, also on May 4, starting at noon.
