Five years since its farewell tour, Slayer returns and has already announced its new live dates!

After concluding their world tour in November 2019, SLAYER, featuring Tom Araya on bass and vocals, Kerry King and Gary Holt on guitars, and Paul Bostaph on drums, is set to make a highly anticipated return to the stage this fall. The iconic thrash metal band will headline two major festivals, Riot Fest and Louder Than Life, marking their first live performances since the conclusion of their previous tour. Fans around the world eagerly await the opportunity to witness SLAYER’s legendary live show once again, as they continue to solidify their status as one of the most influential and revered bands in the history of heavy metal.

“Nothing compares to the 90 minutes when we’re on stage playing live, sharing that intense energy with our fans,” Araya said, “and to be honest, we have missed that.” King added: “Have I missed playing live? Absolutely. SLAYER means a lot to our fans; they mean a lot to us. It will be five years since we have seen them.”

So far the following dates have been announced:

Sep. 22 – Riot Fest – Chicago, IL
Sep. 27 – Louder Than Life – Louisville, KY

“We’re thrilled to announce that SLAYER will be reuniting for an earth-shattering performance at Louder Than Life,” says Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents. “I was at their last show at The Forum in 2019 and have been working since then to bring them back to the Louder stage! With over 140 bands on five stages, we’re celebrating our 10th Louder Than Life with the biggest lineup yet!”
