Metallica's "Big Four" tour to be shown live in movie theaters

If you've been to the movies in the past few years, you're aware of Fathom Events. Those movies like "Beer Wars" or UFC cards, "streamed" to a movie theater where willing patrons buy tickets and popcorn and sit and enjoy. Combining Fathom Events with thrash metal is almost the exact opposite of a no-brainer, yet Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth will be live, on movie screens across America this summer.

If you’ve been to the movies in the past few years, you’re aware of Fathom Events. Those movies like “Beer Wars” or UFC cards, “streamed” to a movie theater where willing patrons buy tickets and popcorn and sit and enjoy. Combining Fathom Events with thrash metal is almost the exact opposite of a no-brainer, yet Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth will be live, on movie screens across America this summer.

The “Big Four” tour will not be making its way to the United States this summer, but we’ll be able to watch from the comfort of an air conditioned theater. Hey, it’s better than nothing. Metallica headlines the tour, the first run to feature the biggest names in metal. The Bay Area brawlers will play a full 75-minute set while the other bands will all get 45. Tickets are already available, so pick yours up. If you’ve already booked a flight and bought your festival tickets to actually see this show, godspeed.
