News of the Big Four hitting your living room leaked out via online retailers last week but we now have official confirmation from Metallica that their historic gig with Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax is set for release on DVD and Blu-ray and they even confirmed the release dates. Here what Metallica had to say:
"From Bulgaria to your local theatre to your living room or wherever you might enjoy a little live metal on the screen... You may have heard us say something about a DVD at the end of the satellite broadcast or read it in the internet rumor mill . . . it's true, there will be a DVD release of the Big 4 show from Sofia, Bulgaria!! We had such an awesome time hanging with Anthrax, Megadeth and Slayer and the cameras were already rolling, so why not?"
The DVD hits the streets on October 15 in Northern Europe, October 18 in most of the rest of the world, October 19 in North America and the full shows from all four bands will be included in the two disc set along with behind the scenes and interview footage.
In addition to the two DVD set and the corresponding Blu-ray, there will be a limited edition "super deluxe" box set including the DVD set, five CD's with All the music, a 24 page booklet, a poster, photos of each band, and a Big 4 guitar pick.
