The news all around the interwebs yesterday was Slayer. Slayer has decided to hang it up and go out with style by announcing their Farewell World Tour. The band will be bringing some top-shelf special guests along with them including Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, and the almighty Testament.
The North American leg of this tour will run May 10th, to June 20th, 2018. The tour includes the west coast, parts of Canada, the north, the south, and the east coast. What the tour does not include is Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas. So, if you’re like me and live in Nebraska… your ass will most likely be traveling. I’m guessing Texas is nice and boiling hot around mid-June, or perhaps Minneapolis is not planet Uranus freezing cold in late-May.
It just blows my mind, there are three California dates and three Texas dates on this tour. Why the hell did Lincoln even build that new fancy arena? Or what about The Mid-America Center in Iowa? I’ll list the current tour dates below and some classic Slayer music to send you off. Speaking of classic, let’s go back to where it all began with a little “Show No Mercy” from 1983. See you at one of these dates.
