Almost 30 years of head-banging can certainly take it’s toll… After announcing the postponement of it’s east coast “Canadian Carnage” co-headline tour with MEGADETH, SLAYER announced today that they’ll also be postponing its UK and European tour that had been set to kick off on November 18.
“It is with immense disappointment that Slayer must postpone its UK and European tour that had been set to kick off on November 18 in the UK, and take the band on 19 dates through Europe, ending on December 17 in Germany. The tour will be rescheduled to kick off on March 7 in Manchester, England (complete itinerary is below).
Vocalist/bassist Tom Araya has been under the care of a specialist for a back injury, and while he has already made substantial improvement, he is continuing on with doctor-prescribed treatment.
“Right now,” said Slayer’s manager, Rick Sales, “our main concern must be the full and permanent recovery of Tom, so we have decided to clear the calendar and give him the extra time he needs to concentrate solely on good health.”
Last week, Slayer announced the postponement of it’s east coast “Canadian Carnage” co-headline tour with Megadeth; those dates will be rescheduled in February 2010.”
