Tour Announcement
Slayer
Final World Tour
May – June, 2018

Legendary thrash band, Slayer, have announced they will be embarking on their FINAL world tour, after nearly 37 years. The first leg of the tour will be North America, and joining them are Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament. This great lineup will be making its way across the US and Canada throughout May and June.

Randy Blythe of Lamb of God says: “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…”

Anthrax bassist Frank Bello stated: “It’s truly an honor to be on Slayer’s final tour. Anthrax and Slayer have toured together for decades, we are family, band and crew, so we want to help give Slayer the best send-off possible and to have one last blast with our friends. But you know, at the end of the day, Slayer will never die.”
