Haha, indeed finally. Last year, it seemed like Americans were totally discriminated unlike us Europeans.

Aside from a very weak sound during Slayer and Lars' incompetent bass drums, 25th of July 2010 was a really great and memorable day for me. enjoy, americans

Would anyone be surprised if one of the sponsor companies of the tour was the Hoveround Power Chairs?

Hehe... it's funny to see these guys gettin' around these days, after all the shit they put their bodies through. haha. That and they're old and tired.

And what about a South America tour?
BitterCOld - 24.01.2011 at 19:30  
Questions that spring to mind:

1. how much?

2. how close?

3. who will be singing for Anthrax?

4. is there really any reason to go? Have seen two of the bands before. Slayer half a dozen times including during their prime, and Megadeth doing RIP a year ago and they didn't sound so hot. the notion of "just going to see a band because i have a chance" doesn't quite get me quite as fired up as "holy shit, this band is coming here!" factor in a price tag of likely no less than $80...

it's 2011, not 1990.

FUCK YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lit. - 24.01.2011 at 22:20  
If it's close, I'm definatly there.
But, really, I've already seen the bands worth seeing: Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax at American Carnage II, and Metallica just isn't worth wasting money to see IMO.
Then again, when am I gonna get another opportunity like this?
DethDonald - 24.01.2011 at 23:22  
Have yet to see any of the bands live yet so if I'm able to go I'm going. Preferably in Maine but its not going to happen so I'm going to hope for New Hampshire.

Hope they hit more places that Maiden does...

I saw this in Sofia and it's fuckin awesome

Better hit orlando. we just built and opened a brand new arena that would be perfect for this.

Of course it is. Bulgarian metalheads rock.

Otherwise, have fun everyone! It was high-time American Big 4 dates had been announced.

I'm all for replacing Metallica with Testament
frozenhell - 25.01.2011 at 03:10  
Please come to Antarctica!! So we can convince Metallica's manager to leave them to their to freeze!
RavenKing - 25.01.2011 at 03:50  
Wouldn't be surprised if this was already planned long ago and they just make it look like "the demands have been answered".
All this sounded like a huge marketing operation right from the start, no more.

I agree with Bittercold about "it's 2011, not 1990".

I just feel like Metallica only signed on to do these tours if their logo could be twice as large as everyone else's on the posters.
MetallicA - 25.01.2011 at 06:50  
I've seen Metallica 5 times, Slayer 7 times, Megadeth 4 times, and Anthrax once. BUT not in the same night! Count me in! (if they come close that is)
MetalFreak - 25.01.2011 at 09:02  
I just came. Twice. I don't care if I have to drive 800 miles, I'm so fucking there!

^ I'm sure that's all that matters to Hetfield.
Susan - 25.01.2011 at 10:17  
^ Well, yeah, I suppose that's what I really meant
-Morbid- - 25.01.2011 at 13:28  
Considering I could most likely see 4 other shows for the price of this one, I think I'll pass.

Not that they would be stopping in Oregon anyways...
DethDonald - 25.01.2011 at 17:54  
So it sounds like its only one stop in California. To bad.
