Riot Fears For Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax Big 4 Show

(Rock News Desk) A New York business group fears thrash fans will riot outside the Big 4 concert at the city's Yankee Stadium next month and they've called for Metallica to take pre-emptive action to avoid violence.

James Hetfield and co will close the show after performances by Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax on September 14. And Cary Goodman, head of the 161st Street Business Improvement District of the Bronx, says he's been spurred into action after locked-out fans at sold-out shows in Colombia and Chile ran amok because they couldn't see their heroes.

"When I read about the disturbances and riots I thought, 'Why don't we think proactively and put up a big screen in Macombs Dam Park?'," he said. "Everybody's going to want to dance. I reached out to Metallica's management last month but I haven't heard back." more on this story
