slayer2013lineup_lo Following a summer of storming through Europe, South America and Mexico while topping the bills at solo shows and major festivals, Slayer will headline its first North American tour in two years. The five-week-plus trek will kick off on October 22nd in Anchorage, Alaska, oddly enough marking the first time the band has played there since October 23rd, 1996. The tour will include the band’s previously announced return to New York’s Theatre at Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Palladium, venues the band hasn’t performed at in 25 years.

Slayer – Tom Araya/bass vocals, guitarist Kerry King, drummer Paul Bostaph, and guitarist Gary Holt, who continues to fill in for the late founding member Jeff Hanneman – will have Gojira and 4ARM support on all dates.

Tickets for all dates on Slayer’s U.S. tour, go on sale beginning this Friday, September 6th. Log onto for complete on-sale dates and ticketing information.

While still recovering from the devastating loss of Hanneman, Araya and King have begun to work on new material and hope to spend some time in the studio prior to this tour.

    Metallica: Corporate whores
    Megadeth :Alex Jones favorite band
    Anthrax: The Ian-Benante ego show
    Slayer : The King ego show.

    Thrash doesn’t age well

    Glad I saw this bunch on noise you mentioned in the 80’s but Metallica still brings it on huge though performing on that stage on 125th street is a corporate take it.
