Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Says Metallica Are The Hold Outs For More Big Four Shows, Suggests Doing Big Three Shows

Considering the fact that Slayer will be retiring soon, Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine has said he would like to do at least one more Big Four show with Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax before that happens. Now, during a recent interview with Eddie Trunk, Mustaine talked more about that idea, and the possibility of doing Big Three shows without Metallica, since they seem to be the hold outs.

Mustaine said the following:

“I think if you asked the three of us that, our camps would probably say yes. If Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth all want to do it, and Metallica doesn’t, then what do we do? The Big Three? I’m sure that a lot of people would like to see that, and that may be what it is. You know, you may end up having it be the Big Three plus No. 5 if we have Exodus play with it.

But it’s not about just doing concerts for the sake of concerts. It was about the movement. It was about what we did together as a group.

Excluding Anthrax, we’re all like neighbors almost ’cause we all lived so close. It was just a half hour to an hour at at most between each other’s houses on the freeway. So, I think it would be great to do more Big Four stuff—do one in Japan. Do one in South America—we never did one in South America; we haven’t done one in Asia. Give the people an opportunity to see it before it goes away forever.”

On another note, it looks like Scott Ian (Anthrax) would like to do some shows as well:

Gary Holt On The Possibility Of A New Slayer Album: “I’d Say It’s A No”

Gary Holt (Slayer, Exodus) was recently interviewed by Jimmy Kay of Canada’s The Metal Voice and was asked about Slayer’s “final” world tour. At first he said the following: “My middle name is ‘No Comment.’ See you at the shows. Seriously, no comment,” but then added the following after Kay mentioned how some bands, like Scorpions, change their minds about retirement:

“Noooo. C’mon! But I love the Scorpions. I hope [their tour] never ends. We are wrapping it up. The tour dates have been announced. The tour is huge. It’s gonna be awesome. And I’m honored and proud to be a part of it. And we’re gonna make it something for people to remember. It’s gonna be epic.”

He also said the following when asked about the possibility of a new album:

“No. No, there’s no new album. I’d say it’s a no. But my name is Gary ‘No Comment’ Holt today. I don’t know nothing. You’ve seen the dates, you saw the press releases. And come out and celebrate the mighty history of Slayer, which I’m lucky to have been part of for the last seven years now. It’s been a ride, it’s been remarkable, and we’re gonna end it in gloriously violent fashion.”
