This summer just got a whole lot more brutal with one of the heaviest tours of the year. This is not a drill folks! North America will have the chance to see Slayer, Lamb Of God and Behemoth on the same bill. How's that for a night out? All the dates are listed down below.
The tour will begin on July 12th in Bemidji, Minnesota and run through August 20th in Phoenix, lasting for 24 shows over the course of six weeks. The tour will also include three festival stops. Behemoth won't be present at Cadott Rock Fest and Rock USA Festival, but will be present at Chicago Open Air.
Slayer's Kerry King comments on the tour: "As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metalheads 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!!"
Tickets will go on sale this Friday, March 3rd.
