MEGADETH and SLAYER have confirmed that they will each perform, start to finish, their 1990 releases - SLAYER’s world-wide, million-selling Seasons In The Abyss and MEGADETH’s Platinum Rust In Peace - on the upcoming Canadian and American Carnage Tours. The six-date Canadian Carnage kicks off July 23 in Quebec City, while the 19-city American Carnage dates begin August 11 in Glens Falls, NY (complete itinerary is below). With SLAYER and MEGADETH co-headlining, TESTAMENT will be special guest on all dates.
“Right after the surgery,” said Tom Araya (SLAYER), “I could tell that the issue was fixed. There’s no more pain, it just feels really good. I’m really excited and I’m anxious to get together with the rest of the guys and start rehearsing again. We cancelled two tours, and I don’t feel great about that, but I couldn’t deal with the pain anymore, and that’s now completely gone. I know the fans are excited to see the band - the tour is on, we’re keeping our word, there will be no more cancellations.”
