Dave Mustaine of Megadeth keeps asking Metallica to do one more Big 4 show with Anthrax and the retired Slayer.
He tells Songfacts, “I really think it’s time for the guys in Metallica to step up, and us do one last round, see if we can get Slayer to come out of retirement and do a ‘Big 4 passing of the torch’ to the new Big 4." As for who they'd be passing the torch to, Mustaine mentioned Arch Enemy, Lamb of God and Trivium.
“I think it would be really cool symbolically if we did something at, like, the L.A. Coliseum, even if it’s one show and that’s it. Slayer is from Los Angeles, so it would probably make it more convenient for them to go home at night. I personally have been hoping for this for a while, and I keep asking and asking and asking. They’re just not into it. But that’s up to them."
Slayer did their final show in 2019, and the last Big 4 concert was in 2011.
