Metallica Pisses Off Their Fans...Again.

In the metal world 2010 was the year of the Big 4. Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax have been playing shows all over the world. However, much to the dismay of their fans, they haven't played one show in the US. A few weeks ago they started hinting at a US tour and everyone got very excited. They even created a Big 4 Facebook page where fans would hear the big announcement first.

Today was the big day everyone was waiting for, the day of the big announcement. What cities would they be hitting? How many shows would their be? How much would a ticket cost? Well, they answered all of those questions this morning by posting the entire tour schedule which consists of one fucking date in California. Yes, all the fucking hype and all the demand and they basically post a big fuck you to their fans in the US.

Now it might be a bit much to put the blame solely on Metallica but let's be honest, this will be the biggest pay day ever for the other three bands. Why would they possibly walk away from a touring opportunity? The only band that doesn't have anything to lose here is Metallica. We all know they're calling the shots here.

So here we are. Four of the greatest American metal bands in history finally playing together and guess fucking what? They're only playing one show in their home country. Fuck you dudes.

***Update: The fan feedback so far has been ferocious. People are fucking furious about being strung along. Check out the Big 4 page and you'll see what I mean. I wouldn't be surprised if all the negative publicity leads to a couple more shows. I'm thinking at the very least they add an NYC and Chicago area date.
