In January, metal legends Slayer announced dates for what they said is their final world tour, which was disappointingly going to miss San Antonio altogether. However, with more than half the tour’s first leg dates already either completely sold out or close to it, Slayer announced a second leg in North America, including SA. The now 46-date tour includes metal-heavyweights Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament.
“If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor,” Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe said in a press release. “It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We’ll see you on the road.”
$49-$193, Wed Aug 15, 4:30pm, Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E. Houston St., freemancoliseum.com.
