Slayer: No More Big 4 Shows
Slayer have told Classic Rock that they doubt there will be any more ‘Big 4 Of Thrash Metal’ shows.
“If you look at how much work went into making it all happen in the first place, then I really doubt we can do the same thing again,” says guitarist Kerry King.
“You had four headlining bands – Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and us – touring together and that takes so much organising.
“I know there are some parts where they’re angry not to have gotten the chance to see it. The Bay Area will probably never forgive us. And we could go on and on doing it for ages.
“But I honestly doubt we can get our schedules to coincide like that again.”
Slayer are currently writing songs for their next album, with the aim being to have it out in the summer.
They also are one of the headline attractions for the All Tomorrow’s Parties I’ll Be Your Mirror event at London’s Alexandra Palace, where they’ll play the whole of Reign In Blood. This happens from May 25-27.
