Posted by on January 23, 2018 at 10:18 am

Rumors about a tour featuring Slayer, Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament had been heating up over the past month. Yesterday, the announcement came alongside the massive shock that this would also double as Slayer's farewell tour. The bands have now announced the North American portion of the tour, which will run throughout May and June. World tour news should be coming soon, but if you're anywhere even remotely close to any of these venues, you need to go! This could be your last chance!

The press release states that Paul Bostaph will be drumming for the band on this trek. It's safe to assume Slayer will never work with Dave Lombardo again. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am local time. You can click on a date to go to the venue's ticket page for more info on pre-sales and on sale times.

All the bands supporting Slayer commented on being a part of this big moment:

"If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it's an incredible honor. Slayer gave Lamb Of God our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We'll see you on the road…" – Randy Blythe, Lamb Of God

"It's truly an honor to be on Slayer's final tour," said Anthrax's Frank Bello. "Anthrax and Slayer have toured together for decades, we are family, band and crew, so we want to help give Slayer the best send-off possible and to have one last blast with our friends. But you know, at the end of the day, Slayer will never die."

"Well, well, well… the dream comes true AGAIN it seems. Behemoth will be teaming up with mighty Slayer again for another extensive American run later this year! Nothing short of epic if you ask me! I cannot wait to confront American legions again before we unleash the new record. One of the biggest metal tours this year: Testament, Behemoth, Anthrax, Lamb Of God and Slayer. Can you miss it out? FUCK NO!" Negral, Behemoth

"Sharing the stage with Slayer once again is going to be an honor, and to be a part of the final tour is going to be a special privilege for us. Slayer has influenced so many aggressive bands in their career. This tour will be an epic time for all who attend. Do yourself a favor and clear your calendars when this show comes to town. This will be your last chance to see a tour like this. Get ready North America for the devastation." – Chuck Billy, Testament
