SLAYER To Go All “Old-School” On Upcoming North American TourFriday, 25th October 2013
“We’re having such a great time rehearsing this ‘old-school’ set, we’ve decided to play it on every one of our upcoming tour dates,” announced SLAYER’s Kerry King.
Holed up in Las Vegas rehearsing for its five-week North American tour that kicks off at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tomorrow, SLAYER has been rehearsing many of the band’s most classic and fan-favorite songs, all of which were originally written and released between the band’s inception and the 1990 gold disc Seasons In The Abyss.
SLAYER’s “old-school night” set will include tracks from 1983’s Show No Mercy, 1985’s Hell Awaits, the genre-defining and gold-certified Reign In Blood (1986), 1988’s South of Heaven, also certified gold, and Seasons.
“The final set list is still coming together,” added bassist/vocalist Tom Araya, “but we’re going to give the fans what amounts to ‘decades of aggression.’ It’s going to be a great night of music and moshing for everyone.”
SLAYER’s current touring lineup consists of King, Araya, drummer Paul Bostaph, and guitarist Gary Holt EXODUS), who continues to fill in for the late founding member Jeff Hanneman.
