Slayer were recently teasing something for this fall which seemed like it'd be the band's very last tour, and today they announced that is indeed what it was. Officially billed as "the last leg of its farewell world tour," the run goes down across the US this November with support from Primus, Ministry, and Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, the latter of whom will be "performing a vulgar display of Pantera" (as they did in Hollywood last year). The tour also follows Slayer's set at Riot Fest this September, which is billed as their "final Chicago and Milwaukee show."
The tour hits Asheville, NC; Raleigh, NC; Hershey, PA; Springfield, MA; New York City; Louisville, KY; Columbus, OH; Omaha, NE; Colorado Springs, CO; Spokane WA; Oakland, CA; Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles, CA; and more.
There's a BrooklynVegan presale for all dates. The presale begins Wednesday (7/10) at 10 AM local; check back here Wednesday morning for the password. The public on-sale begins Friday (7/12) at 10 AM local.
The NYC show happens on November 9 at Madison Square Garden. All dates are listed, with a trailer video for the tour, below.
