Slayer w Lamb Of God @ Theater at Madison Square Garden

A gathering of Metal forces that cannot be tamed! You don’t want to miss a second of this brutalizing show when it touches down in the Big Apple.

Behold Your Tour of Tours: Slayer, Lamb Of God and Behemoth!!!

The scuttlebutt for this one has been making the rounds for a couple of days but I generally try to wait for 100% official press confirmation announcements since its a good policy. That being said, the Apocalypse will be set in motion this summer based on the fact that Slayer will be doing a headlining run with support from Lamb Of God and Behemoth. Check out the full on scoop below. I’ll be back with closing thoughts later.

The Press Release:
SLAYER…LAMB OF GOD…BEHEMOTH…Spreading The Apocalypse This Summer
LOS ANGELES, CA – Tuesday, February 28, 2017 — There are many perilous ways one can spend time off – Volcano-boarding down Cerro Negro, Nicaragua’s active volcano, or maybe bungee jumping from a helicopter over the bubbling crater of Chile’s Villarrica. How about a visit to Sao Paulo’s Snake Island, home of some 4000 golden lancehead vipers whose venom can melt human flesh, or shark diving without a cage in South Africa. But nothing is quite as hazardous or risky as a night in the pit at a Slayer concert. Add to that the ferociousness of Lamb of God and Behemoth, and you’ve got a Satan-approved triple bill of Biblical proportions.

The six-week expedition will rage across North America beginning July 12 in Bemidji, MN, winding up in Phoenix, AZ on August 20. Slayer and Lamb of God will also play Wisconsin’s Rock Fest 2017 (7/13) and Rock USA 2017 (7/15), and then meet up with Behemoth at the Chicago Open Air Festival on July 16. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 3; log on to www.slayer.net/tour for all purchasing details.

Kerry King/Slayer Quote:
“As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it! Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start. That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends- bands as well as fanatical fans! Let the festivities begin!!” Continue reading Behold Your Tour of Tours: Slayer, Lamb Of God and Behemoth!!!
