Thrash metal icons Slayer have announced a second North American date on their much-publicised “final” world tour, first announced on 22 January. The new dates have literally been added due to popular demand as with more than half the original tour dates have already either completely sold out or are likely to do so shortly.
Set to kick off on Thursday, 26 July at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire, the tour will travel to 20 cities over about five weeks, culminating at San Jose’s SAP Center on August 26. Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Testament And Napalm Death will accompany the band on all dates. The general ticket on-sale for most dates begins this Friday, 9 March 9 at 10 am local times. Very limited Slayer onstage + meet-and-greet + exclusive merchandise packages will be available. Log on to Slayer’s website for all ticket and package purchasing information.
A second North American leg for this tour had been considered to take place at some point down the line, but within 48 hours of the initial January 26 ticket on sale date, that all changed.
“We were blown away by the speed of sales for the final run,” said Rick Franks, president of touring for Live Nation, one of the tour’s promoters. “Thirty-six years later and Slayer are bigger than ever before.”
