Scott Ian Shares The Very First Time Lars Ulrich Asked Him To Do Big Four Shows
Anthrax rhythm guitarist Scott Ian shared a post on his official Instagram page revealing the time when Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich asked him about doing The Big Four shows 12 years ago during Metallica’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame party.
As many of you might recall, the ‘big four’ bands of thrash metal, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax decided to perform together for the first time back on June 16, 2010. The legendary foursome’s performance was filmed and shown at 450 movie theaters in the United States and over 350 movie theaters across Europe, Canada, and Latin America on June 22, 2010.
Recently, Anthrax only original remaining member shared a post on his official Instagram page revealing a picture with his bandmate Charlie Benante and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page from the day when they were at Metallica’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame party in Cleveland.
As the picture itself was not legendary enough for fans, Scott Ian also revealed that it was the day when iconic drummer Lars Ulrich offered them to perform as the ‘big four’ 12 years ago. Apparently, it was as exciting for Ian as for the fans since he stated that the experience and the offer were amazing.
Here is what Ian said:
“12 years ago right now. We were at Metallica’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame party in Cleveland hanging with Jimmy. And if that wasn’t amazing enough, it was also the night Lars asked us about doing Big 4 shows.“
