Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has announced that he will be unable to perform with the band at the scheduled concerts this July, as he and his wife Pearl are expecting their first child together.

Taking his place for the shows will be Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser, who commented on the job with the following Twitter post:

"Yes, I will replace Scott Ian in July, his wife will have a child at the time... about 8 shows, including Sonisphere, Big 4."

No more than Slayer with Gary Holt isn't Slayer. It's a shame mostly because of the Big Four thing. A Big Four show without Scott Ian is just weird.
