LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 02: Metallica (L-R) Robert Trujillo, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett perform at the 5th Annual Revolver Golden Gods Award Show at Club Nokia on May 2, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

With fans coming to grips with Slayer announcing their “farewell tour,” buzz about one last “Big Four” show with Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax started to surface.

Naturally, the hardest band to secure for a “Big Four” show would be Metallica, but Dave Mustaine said in a recent interview with Eddie Trunk that, “If Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth all wanna do it, and Metallica doesn’t, then what do we do?  The Big Three?  I’m sure that a lot of people would like to see that, and that may be what it is.”

So, would you see a “Big Four” show sans Metallica?  Vote in the poll below!
