In some incredibly shocking news, Slayer have announced a farewell tour slated for 2018. As of yet, tour dates have not been announced for their final run as a band, nor has the scope of this final tour been fully seen, though it promises to be a “world tour.” The video features a compilation of media throughout the group’s career, ranging from early posters to recent shots of the band, footage from every era.
The band has been going strong since 1981, and this year marks the group’s 37th year together as a group. While we are extremely shocked at this revelation, there have been clues that the band would be ending soon. Lead singer Tom Araya has not shied away from speaking on his mind on not being as interested in touring as of late.
