Slayer: UK Tour Goes Ahead
Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo has told Classic Rock that the band’s upcoming UK tour is definitely happening.
There have been fears that, following bassist/vocalist Tom Araya’s recent back operation, these dates might have to be cancelled.
Says Lombardo: “We did have to put out of a Canadian tour with Megadeth because of Tom’s situation. But, as far as I’m aware the British shows will go ahead. Of course, Tom’s health must take priority. However, he’s making good progress, so we’ll see everyone soon!”
Supported by The Haunted, Slayer are to play Nottingham Rock City November 18, Birmingham 02 Academy 19, Manchester Academy 20, Glasgow Barrowland 22, Leeds Academy 23, London HMV Forum 25/26.
