mastermind Dave Mustaine
recently touched on the matter of Big Four
tour hitting the road in Australia, calling it a great idea.
"It would be cool,"
Dave told the Brag. "I think Australia deserves the same kind of concerts that anywhere in the world does. I say Australia, the Big Four, why not?"
During the rest of the chat, Mustaine discussed the band's live performances, calling them drastically better than their early-day gigs.
"Before, when we were playing, live performances were a crapshoot,"
he confessed. "Playing live could have ended up like anything, the way that we played, the way that we partied, the way that we approached our job. Now everyday when we go to play it's so much more different because we're so much more serious about what we’re doing as a band."
"I think that our shows have really stepped up in quality a lot,"
the frontman concluded.
Dave was also asked about the upcoming "Youthanasia
" release anniversary and the possibility of the band touring the album in full
"It's kind of hard to say,"
he replied. "We'll definitely do something around the anniversary point. Is there going to be a release around it? I don't know. That's up to the label and how things are at the time. We still don't know what the condition of the industry is going to be like in two years from now. Who knows what's going to happen?"
