In what could possibly be the biggest announcement in metal touring this year, Rob Zombie and Slayer have announced the ‘Hell On Earth‘ Tour, which will hit 12 cities across North America. It’s also been confirmed that thrash metal band Exodus is the opener for all dates. I’m beyond thrilled because they’re coming to Detroit and I’m not missing this for anything, guaranteed! This is the first time the two have shared a stage since Ozzfest’99.
“We haven’t toured with Zombie since Ozzfest 1999, so you can expect no less than ‘hell on earth,'” said Slayer’s Kerry King. “Total sonic annihilation and a visual bludgeoning. Bring your own body bag…”
“Total destruction on stage and off is what this combination promises,” states Zombie, “Seriously, how much more Hell could you ask for? The answer is none more Hell.”
Both bands will be playing full sets and they will switch off as headliners, so your show will be completely different from the next or previous night’s show. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 1st at various online outlets.
