Well folks, the end is near. After criss-crossing the world for over a year, Slayer are officially bringing their farewell tour to a close this fall. They've announced that the final leg of the tour will take place across the U.S in November, with the tour aptly being dubbed The Final Campaign. Special guests on the tour will be Primus, Ministry and Phil Anselmo & The Illegals. Phil and his band will be performing A Vulgar Display Of Pantera set. The tour is set to begin on November 2nd in Asheville, North Carolina, and run for 18 shows before culminating in their hometown of Los Angeles on November 30th for what will without a doubt be a historical last show.
If you haven't had the chance to see Slayer at all on this farewell tour, and your city hasn't been announced on this leg, you are need to going to take a road trip, because this is it.
On behalf of all the fans, we say: "Thank you Slayer for all the amazing music and memories. Your music has stood and will continue to stand the test of time, and inspire many bands for years to come! You shall forever REIGN IN BLOOD!"
The final countdown has officially begun.
