Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo breaks silence about “Big Four” tour, and reveals that there was no discussion even before Slayer calls it quits.
Robert, recently had an interview with Australia’s “The Music” podcast, and revelaed that ‘Big Four’ project came to an end.
Here is what he said:
“To be honest, I haven’t heard any conversations about the ‘Big Four,’ We love Slayer – I love Slayer; they’re one of my favorite bands. And Anthrax is amazing. And that was great what we did a few years back.
But I haven’t heard any conversations about that. I mean, obviously, we’re still in the middle of our tour. And I’m not sure what are doing. I know, yeah, Slayer is definitely on their final tour. I’m not even sure Slayer‘s up for that or what.
It’s a weird question, because it hasn’t been talked about or discussed, because everybody is kind of in the middle of their stuff right now. So I don’t even know how to answer that.
But I can say it was an incredible experience, and we all had a blast. And it was something that no one thought could really be done, and then it happened. And it was a beautiful thing. But, you know, I think at some point, everybody kind of moves on and they get wrapped up in their stuff, and that’s kind of where everybody’s at right now.”

Back in January 2018, Dave Mustaine said that, he wants one more Big 4 Tour before the end of Slayer’s final tour. Here is what he said earlier:
“I think everybody in the metal community wants to see that, with Slayer going away. Although, fortunately, with the attention that they’re getting, they’re not [going away yet] — there’s so much attention for them that they continue to play, which is great for us.
But I think that before they retire, there should be another ‘Big Four’ show. And since the scene primarily started in the [San Francisco] Bay Area, I think it should be done in the Bay Area or here [in Los Angeles]. To me, it’s just not right. I think there should be at least one more.”
