Cineworld cinemas all around the UK (including Hull) will be screening The Big Four (Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth) performance at Sonisphere in Bulgaria on Tuesday, June 22, 2010
Fans will be able to catch every minute of head-banging action at over 30 Cineworld sites. The performances will run for three hours and 45 minutes with an additional 30 minute pre-show. The pre-show, a warm up for the main event, will include behind the scenes footage as well as exclusive interviews with the bands.
Head of Cineworld Marketing Communications, Luke Roberts comments: “We’re really pleased to be screening this once in a lifetime show. It offers something a little different that many wouldn’t expect to see at the cinema. Hopefully the screenings will allow as many fans as possible to experience the gig; we don’t want them to miss out on what’s going to be a spectacular event.”
Anthrax‘s Scott Ian said of the show: “It ends 26 years of expectation,” adding, “I believe that, not only will we live up to the expectations, we will shatter them! No other four bands as influential as the four of us have ever done this. Imagine if The Beatles, Stones, The Who and Zeppelin had done shows, or Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Motorhead…that’s how big I feel this is.”
