(CelebrityAccess) — Thrash metal legends Slayer revealed that they are extending what has been billed as their farewell tour into 2019.
Buoyed by the response of their just-completed North American run, Slayer announced plans to extend the tour through the end of 2019 with a fistful of dates in the U.K. and Europe.
“I just want to take the time out to say thank you to all our fans who have made this first part of this tour phenomenal,” says bassist/vocalist Tom Araya a press statement. “You really are loyal and dedicated fans and we appreciate that so much from you.
“We still have quite a few places to play,” he adds, “so next year, keep your eyes and ears open so you can catch us live one last and final time,” Araya added.
Slayer is due to perform at Force Fest in Mexico on October 7th and then heads across the Atlantic where they kick off their old-world tour segment on November 1st at 3Arena in Dublin.
Additional dates for 2019 have not bee announced, with one exception – Slayer is lined up for perform at Hellfest 2019 in France next June. Other dates TBA.
