Slayer Tour with Megadeth and Anthrax Announced!

ORIGINAL "CLASH OF THE TITANS" LINEUP OF SLAYER, MEGADETH, ANTHRAX, TO TOUR AGAIN
Leg Two of "American Carnage Tour" Announced


Metalheads, rejoice: North America's biggest thrash tour in 20 years is announced, as 1991's original American "Clash of the Titans" lineup - Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax - will tour together once again on Leg Two of the "American Carnage Tour." This trek kicks off September 24 at Superpages.com Center in Dallas, TX and will play 20 dates, including New York's Nassau Coliseum, concluding at Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles on October 21.

On Leg Two of American Carnage, Megadeth will continue to roar through its landmark 1990 album Rust in Peace from front to back, while Slayer will rip the roof off by performing its much-lauded Seasons in the Abyss album, which was also released in 1990. Anthrax recently welcomed back singer Joey Belladonna, who defined the band during its heyday, and now permanently back in the band, will be front-and-center.

A special pre-sale will launch this Wednesday, July 14 onwww.ticketmaster.com (http://knoxvilletickets.com/ for the Knoxville date). Here is your Slayer Pre-sale Password to access tickets: ABYSS. The public on-sale will begin July 23 in most markets.

In the spirit of beating the recession, there will be pre-sale discounts on all tickets in most markets (see below for more details), and if that's not enough, a limited amount of $10 tickets will be available in many cities.

Fans who purchase their tickets online at either www.slayer.net or www.ticketmaster.com will receive a free download of the live audio track "War Ensemble," set to be included on Slayer's forthcoming, as yet unannounced, "Live Intrusion" DVD release. STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS

Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax will kick off the second leg of the "American Carnage Tour" on the heels of the historic "Big Four" Sonisphere Festival concerts they played with Metallica in seven European cities this summer. The dates marked the first time that these four bands - acknowledged as the most influential bands of the thrash genre - had shared a concert bill.

The original "Clash of the Titans" tour united the three forces of thrash metal for the entire summer of 1991, with then-little known Alice in Chains serving as the opener. This tour, which falls under the "American Carnage" banner, isn't rewriting history, it's writing a whole new chapter of head-banging history that is sure to delight fans new and old.

Megadeth and Slayer return to North America late this month to co-headline the east coast "Canadian Carnage Tour," and then starting August 11, the first leg of the "American Carnage Tour" (dates below) with Testament as Special Guest. The tour was originally scheduled for a winter 2010 run, but was postponed when Slayer bassist/vocalist Tom Araya was forced to undergo neck surgery. But as is the case for anything good in life, this tour will be well worth the wait.

Killer. I am so stoked that they are coming back to Louisville after they had to cancel for Tom's neck surgery, except I think he actually sounds better live than he ever has, just my opinion. Use "ABYSS" for the password on presale tickets if you don't know. Unfortunately, my lame venue isn't honoring any discounts. Fucking weak. Seasons in the Abyss in its entirety at every show? Holy shit!
