Dave Mustaine Wants To Do One More Big Four Show Before SLAYER Hangs It Up
Slayer announced its tour yesterday with Lamb Of God, Behemoth, Testament, and Anthrax, and also revealed that this would be the band's final tour. Slayer has yet to comment on the situation as to whether this is just the last tour or if this is them completely hanging it up, but they're calling it the "final exit," so I'd assume it's the latter.
Of course, Megadeth's Dave Mustaine wants to send them off in the proper fashion – one more Big Four show.
I hope for at least one more Big 4 Show before the end of Slayer’s final tour. It just wouldn’t be right. Anyone else with me? https://t.co/izdosfPyZe

The Big Four refers to the quartet of Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Metallica, and it seems like it would be the best way to see Slayer off. Plus, fans have been pushing for a Big Four show ever since it happened in 2011, and this seems like the last chance!
Mustaine has been lobbying for them for a while, when all signs initially pointed to him being the reason it was held up with Tom Araya saying "the politics of character in one particular band" were holding up more shows a few years ago, although at the time Mustaine denied he was the one holding them back, but rather he was not the one to ask.
