Slayer Announce Dates for Farewell Tour

  • Axl Rosenberg

Just a day after announcing their farewell tour, Slayer have now announced dates for said farewell tour. As we all suspected, support will come from Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament. Unfortunately, although the photo above, featuring Dave Lombardo, was used in the press release announcing the tour, Lombardo isn’t mentioned in the text of the release itself; in fact, Paul Bostaph is specifically cited as the band’s drummer. So if you, like me, were hoping they’d bring Lombardo back for this final round of live performances, then you, like me, can no proceed to scream and curse and throw things.

Here are the dates… international fans shouldn’t freak out, as these are just for the North American leg of the tour:
