Slayer reveal that final tour will continue into 2019

Slayer have revealed that their ongoing final world tour will continue into next year. Guitarist Kerry King said:

“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.”

Bassist/vocalist Tom Araya also commented, offering:

“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!”

Aside from an appearance at next year’s Hellfest in Clisson, France, specific dates have yet to be revealed. The group are planning to visit South America, Australia, and Japan in 2019, with additional legs still to be confirmed.

Remaining performances for 2018 include and appearance at Force Fest in Mexico this October, and a European/UK tour with Lamb Of God, Anthrax, and Obituary.
