I don't understand this. 4 American bands who could do HUGE business are doing it in...Poland *?

The metal scene is definitely bigger, and more profitible in Europe than America.

Pretty much any interview with any band playing a European festival or tour date will refer to this.

Agree, but for christs sake.. their American bands.. they are from here dammit! They best give us the satisfaction we deserve. It was us back in the club days who paid for tickets, shirts and ep's when no one in the world knew who they were.

I gotta say that it's great that Europe still has such a great metal audience. Seems everytime I turn around there is some huge festival (sometimes multi-days) that is packed with kick-ass old and new school bands. We don't get that too much in the States anymore. Yeah, we get the Ozzfests and the Gigantours and whatnot every summer but it's year-round over there and it's great that alot of bands who have lost a bit of their following here (not so much talking about any of thje Big Four here, but others) can still go out and play big shows. I'd wager that if the Big Four thing in Poland goes well (which it will) it will, if it hasn't already, have US promoters burning up the phone lines to get this thing happening over here in some capacity. I think the waters are just being tested and this could lead to a 2010 summer thing.

And yeah, a full-scale European tour would be profitable, but not as profitable as a full-scale US tour, not only because there would be more dates in the US, but also because the cost of flights and shipping all the band's equipment and stage sets there as well as multiple other costs would be a boatload of cash more than just throwing three bands in tour buses (guess which 3? :lol: ) and one band (guess which one) flying occassionally to gigs. Yeah, overseas tours are pretty expensive no matter what bands do it. That tour would definitily be a sell-out in any country I believe.

And yeah, RRguitar, I'm one of those guys too that saw all four of those bands multiple times back in their club tour days as well. :wink:

It's fairly cheap going by boat, so I don't think that's a big cost compared to everything else. Denmark <-> Germany, Sweden <-> Finland, and Netherlands <-> UK is when you would go by boat, pretty much. Add the fact that it's probably dirt cheap playing at some of the arenas in the "poor" countries, too. It all evens out.


I don't think the Big Four and all their gear and stage sets are going to take a boat from the US to Europe, as that's the big cost I was referring to that cuts into their profits in the end. Yeah, boats are cheaper sure but I'd bet these bands would pass on boat trips and maybe even buses (when applicable) in favor of a private jet. Then again, I can't imagine Mustaine being allowed on the same plane as Metallica or Kerry King. :lol:

Alex, how big is that venue that Metallica sold out 5 nights in Copenhagen? There was an article in the last issue of "So What!" about those shows, and it made me curious how large the venue is.


UPDATE: They also just announced a Sonisphere Festival date in Switzerland that is bigger than just the "Big 4" -- Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, Motorhead, Heaven and Hell, and Mastodon on June 18 in Zurich, Switzerland at Jonschwil Degenaupark. :shock: *r*
