Hammett: 'Big Four Tour Will Never Happen'

Subscribe to Metallica alerts

Metallica rocker Kirk Hammett has pulled the plug on plans for a world tour with metal rivals Slayer, Anthrax and MEGADETH, insisting conflicting personalities would make it impossible.
Slayer guitarist Kerry King revealed last month that negotiations had started for the first supertour of the 'big four' thrash metal bands.
Metallica rockers Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield recently threw their weight behind the idea - but their bandmate Hammett insists fans shouldn't get their hopes up, because "it's not gonna happen".
Hammett says, "I’ve been hearing that, we’ve all been hearing that for awhile. I get asked (about) it regularly. And, as far as a tour going on, it’s not gonna happen.
"Conflicting schedules, conflicting personalities, (a lot of) conflicting things. It’s a good idea, though. And personally, I can see the significance of playing a tour like that."
