SLAYER Announce Their Final UK Tour




​Having made some of the most brutally aggressive music ever created, being one of four bands that defined an entire musical genre and the band other heavy acts are measured against and aspire to…after nearly 37 years, having released 12 studio albums, multiple live recordings, compilations, live video and box sets, playing nearly 3000 concerts across the globe, receiving countless awards including five Grammy nominations and two Grammy Awards, Gold certifications and other accolades…having its own exhibit in the Smithsonian Institute, gracing hundreds of magazine covers and experiencing the devastating loss of a founding brother, the age of SLAYER, one of the greatest and most legendary bands of all time, is coming to an end.

Late last year SLAYER announced that it will undertake one last tour round the world to thank their fans for all of their support over the years.  At 9.00am UK time next Friday 18th May, tickets go on general sale for the UK leg of the final run over at  The band’s Slaytanic Wehrmacht fan club and O2 presales commence at 9.00am UK time on Wednesday 16th May and Live Nation’s pre-sales begins at 10.00am UK time Thursday 17th May.  A very limited number of Slayer VIP packages will also be available over at

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
