Slayer extend final World Tour 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 just-wrapped Leg Two in North America, with Leg Three taking the band to the UK and Europe from 1 November through to 8 December 2018 (dates below). The band’s announced itinerary also has them headlining Mexico’s ForceFest on 7 October 2018, and Hellfest Open Air in France on 23 June 2019.
Plans are already underway for Slayer to take its Final World Tour to South America, Australia and Japan in 2019. 2019 is twelve months long, and the world is a big place. Additional tour legs will be announced soon.
“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!"
Lamb Of God, Anthrax and Obituary will support across the UK & Europe.
