guitarist Kerry King
has told U.K.'s Metal Hammer
magazine that he has heard through the grapevine that Metallica
drummer Lars Ulrich
is plotting a tour that would include Metallica
Should this tour materialize, this would be the first time that the so-called "Big Four
" of thrash have toured together as part of the same bill. Megadeth
were joined by opening act Alice In Chains
for the U.S. Clash Of The Titans
tour in 1991, while Metallica
last shared a U.K. stage at Milton Keynes Bowl
In an interview conducted yesterday (Wednesday, September 2) in London, Metal Hammer asked Kerry
if there had been a temptation to bring the co-headline tour that Slayer
are about to embark on with Megadeth
in Australia and Canada to U.K. shores.
"I think it would be cool but I knew we had this planned before all of this Megadeth stuff started happening,
" said King
. "They're going to Australia with us, they're going to Canada again with us. I think it would be cool for the European fans to bring that over here because, shit, we didn't even consider playing with those guys since 1990.
So could it be possible that we could get a tour that includes the "Big Four?"
"I've heard people referencing Lars,
" said King
. "I don't know Lars that well and I haven't heard it from Lars, but apparently he's talking to somebody about it. Maybe us, Metallica, Megadeth (and), I think he even threw in Anthrax and I said in this day and age, I know we had that time together, but how do you leave out Machine Head? There's better options than ANTHRAX and that's nothing against Anthrax, but they've just been in pieces for quite some time and that doesn't make as much sense to me.
