No, you are not dreaming nor imagining things as it is indeed true that Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax were touring together under the branding of “The Big Four”. This massive event first took place in Europe and was captured for all eternity on a DVD for all the world to enjoy shortly after. At the time of this film’s release the anticipation was high about such a grouping coming to the USA. I mean they had to right? All of these bands are OUR BANDS after all…..USA Metal Product. This was an amazing happening and bringing these legends of Thrash Metal to the same stage a feat of super human effort. It was surely a day to remember. Click the logo below to be taken to my full on concert report and some photos that were snared from afar, but then please make sure to check back on this blog posting because I have a lot of side images from the experience that I am only presenting here for your enjoyment. I hope you like what you see as this was truly a monumental day or should I say “monu-Metal” day :p

Metallica was continuing to tour for their “Death Magnetic” album and while the last time around the band performed in New Jersey at the Izod Center for a couple of nights with the mighty Machinehead as support, tonight they would be in the historic Madison Square Garden and offer us the direct support power of Lamb Of God. Leading us off for the festivities would be Volbeat from Denmark and these guys are interesting in their own right. We must inform you that this evening would not be the “regular” kind of coverage that we do because while able to do the photography stuff that you enjoy so much, we were unable to secure a ticket and hence would not see the whole show. We wrote what we could just the same and the readers can absorb what we were able to report on and enjoy a wonderful batch of live concert shots by clicking the bands logo below. As is our usual model, the logo will take you to the article that we posted on PiercingMetal.com – however, we recommend that you continue reading on to capture some of the other things that we presented here exclusively.
