Last night in Poland, history was indeed made in the thrash/metal world. The "Big Four" - Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax - the four bands who defined the thrash/metal genre - played together on the same stage for the first time EVER, headlining the Sonisphere Festival 2010 held at Bemowo Airport in Warsaw, Poland in front of some 100,000 ecstatic fans.
"It's about f--cking time this happened," said Slayer's Kerry King last night after playing the history-making show.
For the occasion, Slayer played a set packed with fan-favorites:
World Painted Blood
Dead skin Mask
Angel of Death
Beauty through order
South of Heaven
This history-making Big Four lineup will headline six more Sonisphere Festivals over the summer in Europe. In addition, the show scheduled for Sofia Bulgaria will be broadcast via satellite on Tuesday, June 22 to more than 450 movie theaters in more than 140 markets in the U.S., Europe, Canada and Latin America. Delayed screenings will take place in Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.
