Slayer’s Final World Tour Will Extend Into 2019

“We always knew this tour would take us into 2019,” said Slayer’s Kerry King, “and we’ve been blown away by the response we’ve been getting here in North America.   We’ve heard about fans who have driven five, six hours, or flown in from other cities or countries to see us, so we want to assure our fans that we’ll be on the road through 2019 and will get to as many places around the world as possible to make it easier for everyone to come and see us one last time.”
To date, Slayer’s Final World Tour has consisted of Leg One and the just-wrapped Leg Two in North America, with Leg Three taking the band to the UK and Europe from November 1 through to December 8, 2018.  The band’s announced itinerary also has them headlining Mexico’s ForceFest on October 7, 2018, and Hellfest Open Air in France on June 23, 2019.

“I just want to take the time out to say thank you to all our fans who have made this first part of this tour phenomenal,” said Tom Araya.  “You really are loyal and dedicated fans and we appreciate that so much from you.  We still have quite a few places to play, so next year, keep your eyes and ears open so you can catch us live one last and final time.  Again, thank you!”

Phil Anselmo Chats About His Latest Back Surgery And Working With Kerry King Of Slayer

“I’m about to undergo the second back surgery tomorrow [January 31] to clean up one more little nagging issue that has been dragging my ass down for the last decade,” he explains. “My sciatica has just been driving me fucking bananas ever since the nerves reconnected about four months after the main surgery. It’s a small surgery compared to the first one — no overnight stay at the hospital or anything like that — but once I get this done, we can start accepting shows and get back to fucking work again.”

“You know, someone shot me an email the other day saying there’s been murmurs online about me and Kerry jamming together. And you know everything you read on the Internet is always a hundred percent true. [Laughs] But the real truth is I haven’t talked to Kerry since Jeff Hanneman passed away. I will say this, though: I’m on the worst side of life expectancy now, so for me to close any doors would be just flat out foolish. [Laughs] If Kerry King wants to do a record and it sounds cool, my door is always open.” Read more @ Revolver

Slayer Final World Tour Dates Revealed

After making some of the most brutal, breathtakingly aggressive, all-hell’s-a-breaking-loose music ever created, being one of the four bands that defined an entire musical genre and being the band that other heavy acts are measured against and aspire to…after nearly 37 years, releasing 12 studio albums, multiple live recordings, compilations, live video and two box sets, playing nearly 3000 concerts in all corners of the world, receiving countless awards including five Grammy nominations and two Grammy awards, Gold records and other accolades…having its own exhibit in the Smithsonian Institute, gracing hundreds of magazine covers, experiencing the devastating loss of a founding brother, and even appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the age of Slayer, one of the greatest thrash/ metal/punk bands of this or any age, is coming to an end.

Slayer announces that it will do one last concert tour around the globe to thank their fans for all of their support over the years, for making the last three-and-a-half decades so packed with good times and unforgettable experiences, and will then move on.
