PRESS RELEASE:

Heavy Metal’s “The Big Four: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax” on Cineplex Entertainment’s Screens June 22nd

Sonisphere Festival Concert to be Shown via Satellite from Sofia, Bulgaria in Cineplex Entertainment Theatres across Canada



The Big Four: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax are bringing their historic European tour to the global stage with a concert shown via satellite in High-Definition (HD) in Cineplex Entertainment theatres across the country. These four legendary acts broke out of the underground thrash movement in the 1980’s to dominate the metal world, selling millions of records and packing arenas across the globe. Despite huge demand, these musical giants have never shared the same stage until now.  The legendary concert from the tour’s stop at the Sonisphere Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria will air on Tuesday, June 22nd at more than 65 Cineplex theatres in Canada.

Advance tickets are available beginning Friday, May 28th online at www.cineplex.com/events as well as at participating theatre box offices. General admission is $18.00.

In December 2009, the bands announced that they would be joining forces to take part in the traveling Sonisphere Festival for only seven shows across Europe. Now, this one-time only event from the Sofia show makes it possible for fans far and wide to participate in what otherwise is a very limited run of dates. The HD concert presentation will memorialize the event and the impact will be amplified globally with the cinema screenings, making the dreams of fans around the world over become a reality.

Lars Ulrich of Metallica says of this historic announcement, “Who would have thought that more than 25 years after its inception, thrash metal’s Big Four would not only still be around, be more popular than ever, playing shows together at stadiums all over Europe, and on top of that, coming to a movie theatre near you in High Definition (for better or worse??!!).  Bring it on!”

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian says “Damn, as if this Big Four tour wasn’t exciting enough now we get to be on the big screen worldwide! Metal at the movies, two big horns up!  It is unbelievably gratifying that this means so much to the metal community around the globe. Get your tix, grab some popcorn and get ready to bang your head!”

Declares Slayer’s Kerry King, “I can’t believe someone didn’t make this happen 15 years ago!  The fans finally get what they want.  I think it’s awesome!”

Says Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, “The magnitude of this event hasn’t really sunk in yet, and I am thrilled to know that people around the planet will be able to walk into a movie theatre and experience the greatest line up of Heavy Metal in the history of the world!”

“Cineplex Entertainment is pleased to bring this historic event to our guests across the country,” said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. “For one night only, fans can gather together at Cineplex theatres to experience a rock concert louder and harder than ever before, making you feel like you are head-banging with the crowd in Sofia, Bulgaria.”
