Fender and Squier signature artist Frank Bello of Anthrax fame has got to be ecstatic of the addition of another Big 4 U.S. date at New York’s Yankee Stadium on Sept. 14. Anthrax formed in 1981 in New York, and Bello has always called the Bronx home.
Metallica broke the news on their website with this announcement:
“We felt the enormous love and support, so we just had to find a way to make one more Big 4 show in the States happen. Enter New York . . . that’s right, the Big 4 of Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, and ‘Tallica will be in the new version of the famed Yankee Stadium on September 14, 2011! We can’t wait for a night in the Bronx as our second American show and for those of you who love fun facts, this will also be the second live music event hosted at the new ballpark.”
