"We are looking to book something on the East Coast because of the success of this — it should hopefully come together in a week or two," Metallica’s Lars Ulrich tells Rolling Stone. "Maybe we'll do somewhere in the Midwest and South, too. Still, I don't think it will turn into a 40-date arena tour; that would make it less special. I like the fact that there's an element of chaos to the whole thing. It shouldn't be sterile, streamlined and perfect: it needs an edgy underbelly to remain authentic."
A series of Big 4 shows in Europe last summer kicked off demand for more events from the four iconic acts; last weekend’s show was the first on U.S. soil.
Metallica, meanwhile, are set to bring the Big 4 tour to Europe in July; the band has also confirmed a gig at the 44th edition of Festival d'été de Québec in Quebec City, Canada on Saturday, July 16, as well as a headlining slot at Brazil's Rock In Rio festival this September.
