The final run for Slayer will keep the metal men on the road through 2019

Say you haven’t had a chance to see Slayer’s final run yet? Don’t worry, because it’s going to continue a bit longer. The thrash titans have confirmed that their final goodbye will extend into 2019, making this a meaty, and lengthy, ending.

“We always knew this tour would take us into 2019, and we’ve been blown away by the response we’ve been getting here in North America,” guitarist Kerry King said in an official statement.

“We’ve heard about fans who have driven five, six hours, or flown in from other cities or countries to see us, so we want to assure our fans that we’ll be on the road through 2019 and will get to as many places around the world as possible to make it easier for everyone to come and see us one last time,” he added.

The guys of Slayer recently wrapped up the second leg of their North American farewell tour. Now, they’re heading to Europe in the fall to treat those fans to one final does of their thrash. As for 2019, the band hopes to reach South America, Australia and Japan, as well as “plenty more” areas. “2019 is 12 months long, and the world is a big place,” the band explained in a press release.

“I just want to take the time out to say thank you to all our fans who have made this first part of this tour phenomenal,” singer Tom Araya stated. “You really are loyal and dedicated fans and we appreciate that so much from you.”

“We still have quite a few places to play, so next year, keep your eyes and ears open so you can catch us live one last and final time,” Araya continued. “Again, thank you!”
