We already knew that the three thrash titans would hit the road together, but now comes a new development...

Megadeth and Slayer, who last toured the U.S. together 19 years ago on the "Clash of the Titans" extravaganza, have confirmed that they will each perform, start to finish, their 1990 releases - Slayer's world-wide, million-selling Seasons In The Abyss and Megadeth's Platinum Rust In Peace - on the upcoming Canadian and American Carnage Tours. ...With Slayer and Megadeth co-headlining, Testament will be Special Guest on all dates.
The twelve-year old in me just got STOKED. Tickets are still available for East Rutherford show at the Izod on 8/12.

Tom Araya recently recovered from back surgery, which cancelled all previously scheduled dates for the American Carnage tour.

Full tour dates and some video from those classic LPs are below...

Slayer - "War Ensemble"

Slayer - "Seasons In The Abyss"

Megadeth - "Hangar 18"

what's market hotel?

Posted by Anonymous | April 26, 2010 11:56 AM

personally think Megadeth still rocks, wouldn't have any interest in meeting Mustaine as i'm sure he's a jerk, but who cares. music is still good. and Slayer still rules. bummed that they aren't playing MSG, IZOD is a serious drag to get to w/o a car!! But 'Seasons in the Abyss' in it's entirity! Wow, might have to rent one for that!!

"what's market hotel?"

an illegal club run by douchebags for douchebags. Don't worry about it... you don't need to know.

I wish it was just Slayer, Megadeth can suck it!

If Megadeth were doing Peace Sells... in it's entirety, I would LOVE to see that. Or even the album after that- forgot what it was called. I never listened to the later stuff...

So Far, So Good... So What? was after Peace Sells... classic metal albums... "In My Darkest Hour" was my anthem back in high school... playing these albums from start to finish is really no draw for me... Rust in Peace was a pinnacle turning point for Megadeth and Holy Wars is an epic track but in my opinion it's wasting time slots for better tunes on other albums... like who'd want to hear Lucretia or Five Magics over Darkest Hour, The Conjuring, Wake Up Dead, Hook in Mouth or My Last Words???... and unless Slayer plan some serious encores, no Angel of Death or South of Heaven...wtf???... blah.

Slayer ALWAYS plays Angel of Death! And I'm sure they will play another bunch of songs after doing the album. Their set list is MUCH longer than 10 songs!!
