Belladonna is rumored to be rejoining ANTHRAX for the upcoming "Big Four" shows in Europe with METALLICA, MEGADETH and SLAYER.

ANTHRAX currently has European dates booked from June 16 in Warsaw, Poland until August 8 in Pori, Finland (with almost all of July off).

As BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported earlier this week, Belladonna was seen with ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante and bassist Frank Bello at the April 28, 2010 FOZZY concert at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City,

ANTHRAX was supposed to release its new album, tentatively titled "Worship Music", last October. However, the set has been delayed indefinitely following the departure of singer Dan Nelson in July 2009 and the return of John Bush, who fronted the band between 1992 and 2005.

Belladonna was the lead singer of ANTHRAX from 1984 to 1992, and was considered part of the band's classic lineup (alongside Dan Spitz, Scott Ian, Frank Bello and Charlie Benante), which reunited and toured during 2005 and 2006. His voice was featured on over 10 albums, which reportedly sold eight million copies worldwide.

After splitting with ANTHRAX, Joey continued to make music with a solo project called BELLADONNA, which released its first self-titled debut in the mid-'90s. A follow-up effort, "Spells of Fear", came out in 1998 and it was heavily criticized for bad production and sloppy musicianship. The third album, or rather the demo recordings for what was supposed to be the third BELLADONNA album that was never recorded in a real studio, was self-released by Belladonna in 2003. It was a return to better songwriting and musicianship and it was well received by the fans.

Video footage of Joey Belladonna performing in Plymouth, Massachusetts on July 31, 2009 can be viewed below.
