It was something most thought would never happen- MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine on stage with Metallica- but on June 22nd in Sofia, Bulgaria, not only did the 2 bands play on the same bill, but they joined each other on stage (along with members of Anthrax and Slayer) to perform the Diamon Head track ‘I Am Evil’.

Megadeth bassist David Ellefson issued the following statement after the show, saying: “Just finished our set here in Sofia, Bulgaria. Was AWESOME!! I’ve never been to Bulgaria but the fans were thrilled and it seems everyone is having a fantastic set tonight. If you go see it in the cinema tonight I think you will enjoy. So, get a ticket, some popcorn and a soda and sit back and enjoy the rock concert…

Meanwhile drummer Shawn Drover commented on the Big Four collaboration the following day, saying, “What happened last night on that stage in Sofia, Bulgaria is something that I will cherish forever. I gotta tell ya from where I was standing (between snare drum hits) I have never seen so many people onstage with a smile that big on all of our faces. Better yet for me was to have my kids go to the movie theater back home and watch it all a few hours later and tell me how much they loved it. That meant a lot to me. Damn, I would have liked to go watch this in a movie theater myself. Anyway, just checking in to let you know we are really having a great time out here. I hope all of you who saw the show live or in the movies did as well.”
