Slayer Announce Fall 2013 North American Tour

Tim Tronckoe

After previously announcing concerts in Los Angeles and New York, Slayer have now revealed they will be embarking on a full, five week tour of North America. The trek launches Oct. 22 in Anchorage, Alaska (the first time Slayer has played there since 1996) with supporting bands Gojira and 4Arm.

Two years ago was the last time North American fans were treated to a Slayer headlining tour. Tickets, which are sure to be snapped up quickly, go on sale Friday (Sept. 6). For more details on tickets, visit

It has been a tumultuous year for Slayer, with the tragic death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman and the departure of drummer Dave Lombardo. The current lineup includes vocalist/bassist Tom Araya, guitarist Kerry King, guitarist Gary Holt (of Exodus) and drummer Paul Bostaph.

King and Araya have been working on new material, and hope to get into the studio before the tour kicks off. The band has also been busy playing overseas festivals and shows, and still have a run of South American concerts set for September and October before the U.S. shows launch.

Here are the initial list of Slayer tour dates. If your town isn’t listed, don’t despair, because more dates are expected to be announced soon.
