Slayer have confirmed that their final world tour will extend throughout 2019. The band are planning to announce new dates in South America, Australia, and Japan, and are also in the process of booking more legs.
Kerry King commented:
“We always knew this tour would take us into 2019 and we’ve been blown away by the response we’ve been getting here in North America. We’ve heard about fans who have driven five, six hours, or flown in from other cities or countries to see us, so we want to assure our fans that we’ll be on the road through 2019 and will get to as many places around the world as possible to make it easier for everyone to come and see us one last time.”
Tom Araya added:
“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. You really are loyal and dedicated fans and we appreciate that so much from you. We still have quite a few places to play, so next year, keep your eyes and ears open so you can catch us live one last and final time. Again, thank you!”
The group currently have a European tour planned and they are also set to perform at Mexico’s ForceFest on October 7, 2018 and France’s Hellfest on June 23, 2019.
