In a new Interview with Graspop Metal Meeting, Anthrax bassist Frank Bellow discussed whether ANTHRAX would be interested in playing more “Big Four” shows before SLAYER completes its farewell tour.
Here’s what he said:
“That was a very special [thing].
I hope the ‘Big Four’ happens again. We’re seeing so many people from the next generation that didn’t get to see that, and they see the DVD of it, and they say, “When are you gonna do it again?’ And I say, ‘You have to talk to METALLICA. I would love to do it.'”
When asked about Slayer, he said:
“I think if you ring up my friends in SLAYER [and tell them], ‘We’re doing the ‘Big Four,” I think they’d play some shows. I think they would work it out.
He further added:
I think [they would come out of retirement for it]. The ‘Big Four’ is special enough that we all rise to it. I would hope they would do that. I mean, I would certainly try to talk them into it.”
