The Big 4: "Am I Evil" Footage From California Available

The "Big Four" of 1980s thrash metal - Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax - performed for the first time ever on the same stage in the United States yesterday (Saturday, April 23) at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California in front of a capacity crowd of more than 50,000 metalheads. 

The highly anticipated onstage performance of all four bands at the same time happened near the end of Metallica´s set, between "Enter Sandman" and "Hit The Lights". Members of all four bands joined Metallica on stage for a cover of Diamond Head's "Am I Evil?". Watch two fan-filmed videoes below.

James Hetfield said, "Can you believe it? Thirty years, man. I don't know how many of you have been around that long, you know?! It doesn't matter; you're here right now to see the 'Big Four,' and we're getting this prepared for a big jam, alright? It's pretty important."
