Slayer in Europe, August 2013
As discussed at BV Chicago, Slayer have released a new set of dates without both Jeff Hanneman (RIP) and Dave Lombardo in tow. Its a bit strange to think that is a possibility considering their last 10+ years touring as all four original members, followed by Hanneman's departure a couple of years ago. Either way, the dates include all of the previously discussed appearances at The Theater at MSG, Fun Fun Fun Fest and more, as well as stops in Camden, NJ at Susquehanna Bank Center on November 29 and Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, CT on November 26.
Tickets are currently on sale for MSG; Tickets for the NJ and CT are currently on Fan Club presale (anyone know the password?), with a Citi presale on Wednesday at 10 AM, Live Nation presale on Thursday (9/5) at 10 AM and on sale to the general public starting Friday (9/6) at 10 AM.
All tour dates are listed, along with recent live video, including one of Phil Anselmo singing "Fucking Hostile" with Slayer as his backing band, below.

Testament at Wellmont Theater, Oct 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
Bay Area thrashers Testament will team with Overkill, Flotsam & Jetsam and 4arm for a string of dates in the new year, kicking off at The Filmore in San Francisco. From there, look for the bands to head south and eastward, eventually towards the New York area for two dates: Feb 14 at Best Buy Theater in NYC and Feb 15th at The Paramount on Long Island. Tickets for Best Buy go on AMEX presale at 10AM on Wed (11/28), with regular sale hitting on Friday (11/30), while tickets for The Paramount are currently on Citi presale with regular sale also hitting on Friday.
The trek, named "Dark Roots of Thrash", is a play on the name of Testament's new album title Dark Roots of The Earth, out now via Century Media. Stream a track from that LP alongside a list of all tour dates below.
