I hope so. According to Noisecreep, Slayer’s Kerry King also hopes so. The Big Four (all American bands by the way), have taken the first ever incarnation of the biggest names in thrash metal to Europe first, leaving many US fans (myself included) feeling a bit left out. Without so much as a hint of the tour making its way across the pond, most fans are seething at this point, but King has stated that if the offer comes up, the band has an open spot in the summer of 2011 and he “hope[s] the American Carnage tour is a precursor to the Big Four coming to the States”. King continues; “that tour should be everywhere: here, Australia, Japan. Any place that wants it should have it and it should happen”.
Despite the arm and leg I probably will need to have removed to afford the ticket price of such an event, I couldn’t agree with the man more. Shoot, throw in some Testament or Exodus and assuming I had one, I would gladly trade in my first born for a GA ticket. If (big IF), there are anymore developments as to this proposed tour, you can be assured that we will report on them asap – so keep coming back and leave your ticket price predictions in the comment section.
***Update*** Yes, they will! Read the full story.
