The Big Four's only US show unfolded this past Saturday in the California desert, with Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax performing for about 50,000 of their closest friends. The single date was so successful that Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich recently told Rolling Stone that fans should expect more Big Four shows. However, Ulrich clarified that there will only be a handful of Big Four shows in specific regions, rather than a full-fledged cross-country tour.

"Obviously, this thing should play more places in America," Ulrich said. "First on the docket is an East Coast play. We are looking to book something on the East Coast because of the success of this -- it should hopefully come together in a week or two."

The drummer also has his sights set on other areas of the country. "Maybe we'll do somewhere in the Midwest and South, too," Ulrich mused. "Still, I don't think it will turn into a 40-date arena tour; that would make it less special. I like the fact that there's an element of chaos to the whole thing. It shouldn't be sterile, streamlined, and perfect: it needs an edgy underbelly to remain authentic."
