VIDEO: Metallica – Big 4 jam at Sonisphere UK

Metallica hit Sonisphere UK Friday night for the fourth installment of the current Big 4 European tour.

Setting up for another jam with members of fellow metal titans Megadeth, Slayer and AxthraxJames Hetfield asked the crowd, "Is there another band playing or something? What's all this extra gear? It's 'The Big Four Band,' does that sound like a good idea? Celebrating 30 years of Metallica, we invite Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and hopefully someone from Diamond Head to put the cherry on top."

"You see that guy, if it wasn't for Brian Tatler, there's a pretty good f**king chance none of us would be here tonight," Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich added while pointing at the Diamond Head guitarist, before the musicians kicked into a version of that band’s song, “Am I Evil?”
