why is it that the big four are all american bands but they tour everywhere except america? seriously? i'm sure there are ppl who get paid a lot more than i do that made some sort of decision that resulted in this that makes business sense...but you would think pure common sense...or more importantly, loyalty to the fans that MADE YOU the BIG FOUR, there would be some selected dates in the good ole USA.

We lose!! I agree, we made the big four and don't get to see them play. There's big enough arenas in good ole USA for them to play.

It's about money. It is obvious that here in Europe metal is bigger than in USA, more people come to concerts so we get better gigs. Simple as that.

Y'know more than likely they will do another tour in America and they'll make a big f***ing deal about it for Revolver and all that sh**.... who knows, maybe the four of them could get a one year only festival tour to replace OzzFest and Mayhem? That could be cool. Too bad this tour had to happen now that Metallica abandoned METAL for a while and then comes back like everythings OK (it's not...f*** Mainstreamtallica...ha, clever huh?...naw, not really), Megadeth only rules again because Mustaine has old school 'deth fans in his band that remember how cool they were, Slayer....well, it really hurts knowing that Araya probably doesn't believe that God Hates Us All, and Anthrax....who the f*** is the singer now? Whatever, Anthrax is just a fun band, so that's cool. In conclusion, I would rather just see Overkill. As far as I know, they have always stayed true to the path and Bobby Blitz has the best voice I've heard in the thrash business! Sorry to anyone wasting their time reading this. I guess we both walk the terrible path of boredom this day. Best wishes to all who can and want to catch this Big Four tour.
