That’s right, you read the headline correctly. We are giving one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets to tomorrow’s Big 4 show at Yankee Stadium. In case you have been living under a rock for the entire year, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth (hopefully), and Anthrax will be playing their only announced East Coast date tomorrow at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. And even though it’s short notice, we want to hook up one person with a pair of tickets to this historical event FOR FREE.
In order to enter for this contest, you’ll need to leave a comment down below saying which of the Big 4 bands means the most to you and why. You’ll have until 5:30 pm EST to enter. If you are chosen, you’ll need to come by the Idle Hands Bar tonight (where we’re throwing a little pre-game party with our buds Metal Sucks, Metal Injection, and Metal Army) with a photo ID to pick up the tickets.
We’ll be emailing one winner asking them to reply with their full name. So make sure to check your emails around 5:30 pm to see if you won because we’ll be asking for a reply ASAP. Please note that we are only giving away one pair of tickets, meaning that you are on your own to find transportation to Yankee Stadium and Idle Hands Bar. If you cannot come to the Idle Hands Bar tonight (starting at 7pm and located on 25 Avenue B in NYC) to pick up your tickets, then please don’t enter.
Update: please include an email address with your entry in the comment section below so that we can easily contact you. Also, only one entry per person (if you already entered without realizing you needed to include your email, you can re-enter or edit your comment).
We know this is super last minute notice, but this is also a pretty historical event (which everyone at Metal Insider is going to). SO enough yackin’, and enter now! Again, you have until 5:30 pm tonight!
[Updated: Congrats to Greg Mason, who is our winner. Didn’t win? You can still come out to Idle Hands tonight to pre-game for tomorrow’s show]
