I have been a slayer fan since 1989, I couldnt wait to see them for the first time. I was in a foster home in the U.P. of Michigan I got emancipated, moved to lower MI and bought tickets for SLAYER, ( it was actually the clash of the titans tour in '91 with megadeth, anthrax, alice in chains, and the ALMIGHTY SLAYER). the hill at DTE music theater (back then it was still called pine knob) was such a massive pit, it was the craziest thing i'd seen, it was fuckin awesome!! I have seen them every time they have come to Michigan since, every where from HARPOS (which is one of the best places in MI to see them, to THE ORBIT ROOM (which is THE BEST) At the harpos show in '98 or '99 i got my tooth chipped in the pit, it was a fucking great memento to a fucking great show. One minor complaint i have to the person in charge of scheduling SLAYER shows in MI, every time they co-headline here they end up not closing, and at bigger shows that sucks......i seen them at clash of the titans, and megadeth closed, i seen them at tattoo the earth, and slipknot closed, i seen them at the extreme steel tour, and pantera closed, it seems MI kinda gets screwed a little. and dont even get me started about the ozzfest lineups, or even the most recent of my ventures the mayhem festival. (SLAYER SHOULD NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS BE PLAYING AHEAD OF MARRILYN MANSON)!!!!! The greatest song ever live and in the pit, is raining blood. the begining , the anticipation, circling in the pit, it fucking rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!One thing that has never changed in almost 19 years of slayer shows, even the big ones that for some reason they are not headlining, is that no matter who is playing there with them, all around the venues and restrooms, and alcohol lines, the only thing you hear yelled, over and over is................FUCKIN SLAYER........u dont hear, fuckin slipknot, fuckin megadeth, fuckin manson, (no offense to these bands), you only hear fuckin slayer. tell me anyone am i wrong? Well i have tickets to cobo arena in detroit, feb 6, floor, im ready for a fucking pit, and i no it will be no differant, all i will hear is ...fuckin slayer, cause no one can touch them. so whoever is scheduling the tour, please have slayer close feb 6 in detroit for a change, help a city out would ya.
I THINK ITS SAD THAT YOU WILL BEING FLYING OVER SALT LAKE CITY AND NOT EVEN STOPPING,EVEN JUST TO SAY HI!!!!!!MAYBE TRY TO DO AN INSTORE, SO YOU WOULDNT HAVE TO PLAY IN UTAH.I WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU GUYS.YOUR IDOLS WHO CANT BE TOUCHED,JUST TRY AND STOP HERE PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE!!!!!!LOVE AND RESPECT.
