The four groups will take the stage at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California on April 23. Tickets for their U.S. show go on sale on Friday, January 28 at 10 a.m. ET.

The four bands performed in Europe together last year and Megadeth and Slayer are set to tour the continent together again from March 13 to April 14, beginning in Ukraine.

"The vibe was just so incredible at last year's Big 4 shows that we can't stop now!!" a message on Metallica's website said.
