From most accounts I’ve heard, The Big Four (a.k.a. The Big 4) was — as I predicted when it was announced — a solid show not worthy of all the pre-show hoopla. But I only have second-hand accounts; I wasn’t there, so I can’t really pass judgement.
I could pay $0.99 for MP3 recordings of Metallica’s closing set, but I’m a cheap fuck. One might say, “Well Chris, you can’t put a price on history.” But you can.
If you’re not like me and actually want to own Metallica’s Big Four performance, you can head on over to the band’s site and cough up $1 a tune, which — with 18 tracks — will cost you $18.
Would it really be worth it? I guess I’d be interested in owning them if I were at the actual Big Four show. I wasn’t.
I’d rather hear the Big Four show with my own ears, and apparently, that’s possibly going to happen.
