BREAKING NEWS | Slayer Farewell Tour Announced

BREAKING NEWS: Slayer Farewell Tour Announced!

Only moments ago, Slayer disturbed metalheads around the globe by announcing a farewell tour. The announcement featured a trailer in which Slayer took us with nostalgia. This, however, came as no shock to most people as the band, especially Tom Araya, had kept hinting at the possibility of retirement.

“After 35 years, it’s time to like, collect my pension,” – Tom Araya for Loudwire in an interview from 2016.

Slayer are yet to announce tour dates (updated: 25-1-18: scroll down for dates and links of each event), but as the video shows it will be a WORLD TOUR!

Slayer To Bid Fans Farewell: “The End is Near…Slayer to tour the world one more time…”

Apparently, the farewell tour will feature: Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament. As you can see in the poster below, that was posted simultaneously with the farewell tour announcement video on the band’s official website.

Slayer then posted on all their social media outlets the following:

The end is near…
SLAYER TO MAKE ITS EXIT WITH ONE FINAL WORLD TOUR

After making some of the most brutal, breathtakingly aggressive, all-hell’s-a-breaking-loose music ever created, playing nearly 3000 concerts in all corners of the world, receiving countless awards, 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 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.

Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament will support Slayer on the first leg, North America, of its final world tour.

Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26 at 10AM local time.

Very limited Slayer onstage + meet & greet + exclusive merchandise packages will be available.

SLAYER Rips Raining Blood On National Television

From criticizing and attacking all that is sacred to leaving all society restrictions behind, Slayer have made their reputation by being one of the most controversial bands in music history.

Even though modern society hasn’t come to turns with accepting such extreme music, it was announced earlier this week that Slayer would be performing during The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. But that isn’t all, for they would be playing their highly controversial tune RAINING BLOOD on a such highly normal TV show that’s usually guested by daily pop music. This actually proved a step in the right direction to accepting criticizing Metal lyrics.

And such a highly anticipated performance by Metalheads and especially Thrashers was met by a highly executed version of the tune as Slayer headed back to their 80’s roots filled with aggression and hate. The 50-year-olds gave national TV a memory that won’t be forgotten soon.

Watch the mind-blowing performance below.

But their appearance wasn’t just limited to the performance; after the show, the band members shared their tales from tour on the show with stories from around the globe involving Europe, Asia, early touring days, and the almighty EXODUS.

Check out the interview ahead.
