News - Slayer Postpones UK Tour

View The Article

Submitted: "It is with immense disappointment that Slayer must postpone its UK tour that had been set to kick off on November 18th in Nottingham. The tour is now rescheduled to start March 7th 2010 in Manchester.

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.

The new UK schedule is as follows:

March 2010
7 Manchester Academy 0161 832 1111
8 London HMV Forum 0844 847 2405
9 London HMV Forum 0844 847 2405

Apr 2010
2 Nottingham Rock City 0871 3100 000
3 Glasgow Barrowland 0871 230 7131
4 Leeds Academy 0844 477 2000
5 Birmingham Academy 0844 477 2000

All tickets for the original shows are still valid.

Tickets also available from 0871 230 5595, and usual outlets."
