Metallica has announced the only American Big 4 tour date for 2011: April 23rd at the Empire Polo Club in Indilo, California (the same venue as Coachella). The Big 4 tour is Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. Here are some comments from Metallica:
“You’ve probably heard us all say it . . . the vibe was just so incredible at last year’s ‘Big Four’ shows that we can’t stop now!! So we’re finally bringing the love to our home turf on April 23, 2011 with ‘TALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH, and ANTHRAX in Indio, California at the Empire Polo Club (yes, the more observant of you will note that this is the same spot where the Coachella festival takes place the weekend before).
“It’s true — this is indeed the only scheduled stop in America this go around, so we’re hoping that you can head West to join us. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 28 at 10 a.m. PST and Fan Club members can check MetClub.com for pre-sale and VIP package info.”
