“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 the just-wrapped Leg Two in North America, with Leg Three taking the band to the UK and Europe from November 1st through to December 8th. The band’s announced itinerary also has them headlining Mexico’s ForceFest on October 7th, and Hellfest Open Air in France on June 23rd, 2019.

Plans are already underway for Slayer to take its Final World Tour to South America, Australia and Japan in 2019. But there will be more, plenty more. 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!”

  1. My favorite live thrash band! I’ve always loved their music consistency. When you put on a Slayer album, you know exactly what kind of music you’re gonna get….aggressive music punching you in the face. I saw the San Diego show on 1st leg of this “final” tour, and it was awesome. Tom looked in great shape and he sounded great. He was smiling the whole show. I hope there are other local dates cuz I surely would love to attend again. F’n SLAYER!!!! \m/

    1. Totally agree, Rattlehead! Slayer is the AC/DC of thrash metal, their music is consistent from album to album. Slayer was never my cup of tea, but I do like some of their music. And I do salute them for their long career. Their fans love them, and it’s apparent that the feeling is mutual.
