With “Leg Three: Europe” of Slayer’s Final World Tour having wrapped up this past Saturday, dates in Australia, Japan, the South Pacific, and the final European dates announced in the past weeks, today Slayer announces “Leg Five: North America” of its Final World Tour. Maintaining the band’s ethos of “play as many places as possible to make it easier for everyone to see the band one last time,” “Leg Five” will visit DTE Energy Music Theatre on Sunday, May 19 at 6 p.m.
“Leg 5” will kick off May 2, 2019 at the Ak-Chin Amphitheatre in Phoenix AZ and see the band performing 16 shows across the southern states and then up the east coast, culminating at the Xfinity Center Amphitheatre in Mansfield, MA on May 25. Lamb of God, Amon Amarth and Cannibal Corpse will support Slayer on all “Leg 5” dates.
“We are pleased to announce that the brutality continues with Lamb Of God supporting Slayer on another leg of their farewell world tour! This is the real thing and is not one to miss. Heavy metal is alive and well and we can see it on the faces and hear it in the voices of the huge crowds filling arenas and amphitheaters everywhere we’ve been. It’s been inspirational to see the energy and dedication of diehard Slayer fans turning out in huge numbers all over the world to support the kings of metal. For Lamb Of God to have been so well received is an honor all its own and we are beyond grateful to join them for another round. Cheers!” – Mark Morton, Lamb of God
