Slayer Announces First Leg Of Final Tour Dates


After the cryptic video announcement from Slayer yesterday, the band announced the first round of dates for what will be the band's final tour - including the 26 date trek of North America.

The band will not be lonely, featuring support from Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament. The tour will visit several major cities - from San Diego to Toronto, Orlando to Minneapolis. Additional support will come from fellow metal heavyweights Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26.

Lamb of God's Randy Blythe commented: "If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it's an incredible honor. Slayer gave Lamb of God our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt - I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour - well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We'll see you on the road..."
