Slayer Announce Final U.K. Tour Dates With Anthrax, Lamb Of God
GRAMMY-winning gods of thrash metal Slayer are finally hanging up their guitar straps and retiring from life on the road.
Amid their previously announced European farewell tour, the band have now revealed their final shows in the U.K., with a planned run of six dates across England, Scotland and Ireland.
Along for the ride are Anthrax — GRAMMY-nominated icons of thrash in their own right — and GRAMMY-nominated metalcore rockers Lamb Of God, with additional tour support from death metal pioneers Obituary.
In a 2016 Loudwire interview, bassist Tom Araya joked, "After 35 years, it's time to like, collect my pension."
Slayer's final sonic assault on the European territories will kick off on Nov. 1 in Dublin, Ireland, and run through Dec. 8, where it will sow its final seeds of mayhem in Helsinki, Finland.
Tickets to all shows will go on sale on May 18.
