So, despite promising an update on tour "dates" (plural) as late as yesterday, the Big 4 of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax have released a statement concerning just a single date.
Saturday, April 23rd, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Tickets go on sale this Friday morning at 10, a day earlier if you're a member of the fan club.
I am shocked and singularly disappointed. Listen, I didn't expect them to come up to my town in upstate NY, but I had sure as hell hoped the tour would find its way to New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Montreal, or some other city I could reasonably get to. This better not be the end. As a fan, I am a mix of alarmed and enraged.
This is bull. Somehow, I blame Lars.
Speaking to KROQ-FM and reported on MetalUnderground, Lars Ulrich was found to say:
Damn it, there better be.
