Concert Gallery: Metallica at “The Big Four” in Indio, CA

Filed under Latest Photo Galleries

On April 23, 2011 Empire Polo Fields in Indio, CA was transformed into the metal Motherland as “The Big Four” descended upon the desert for their only North America appearance. Living up to their name “The Big Four” of Thrash, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax delivered up legendary performances. Check out our galleries from the show below!

Oh and never fear East Coast, we’re not out of this yet! Metallica’s Lars Ulrich told RollingStone.com that more U.S. “Big Four” dates are possible. “We are looking to book something on the East Coast because of the success of this — it should hopefully come together in a week or two,” Ulrich said. “Maybe we’ll do somewhere in the Midwest and South, too. Still, I don’t think it will turn into a 40-date arena tour; that would make it less special. I like the fact that there’s an element of chaos to the whole thing. It shouldn’t be sterile, streamlined and perfect: it needs an edgy underbelly to remain authentic.”

Primus Announce May 18th Santa Cruz, CA Benefit Show

Filed under Daily Music News

Primus have announced an intimate club date on Friday, May 18th at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA as a benefit to support Les Claypool’s nephew Matthew. Matthew was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at 2 months old and was admitted into the hospital, undergoing rigorous chemotherapy treatment which is expected to last a minimum of three years. All proceeds from this show will go towards Matthew’s medical bills.

The show is being presented by Green Gopher Garden Supply, which is owned and operated by Matthew’s father Ron. In a letter to his fans about his nephew’s health, Les said “this has been a gut wrenching experience for all of us and as the big brother, it breaks my heart to watch Ron and his wife Amy go through the torment of seeing their little boy suffer.”

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, February 25th here.

If you cannot attend the show but would still like to support baby Matthew and his family, please visit http://www.babymatthew.org to make a donation.

Looks like they’ll be playing in Indio, CA at the Empire Polo Club (aka where the Coachella Festival goes down each year) on April 23, 2011. Here’s their message:

You’ve probably heard us all say it . . . the vibe was just so incredible at last year’s Big 4 shows that we can’t stop now!! So we’re finally bringing the love to our home turf on April 23, 2011 with ‘Tallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax in Indio, CA at the Empire Polo Club (yes, the more observant of you will note that this is the same spot where the Coachella Festival takes place the weekend before).

It’s true – this is indeed the only scheduled stop in America this go around, so we’re hoping that you can head West to join us. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 28 at 10 AM PST and Fan Club members can check MetClub.com for pre-sale and VIP package info.
