SLAYER müssen ihre geplante Europatournee auf der Frühjahr 2010 verschieben. Grund sind die Rückenprobleme von Sänger und Bassist Tom Araya. Die Tour hätte am 18. November in England beginnen sollen.
Das Statement von SLAYER:
´It is with immense disappointment that SLAYER must postpone its U.K. and European tour that had been set to kick off on November 18 in the U.K., and take the band on 19 dates through Europe, ending on December 17 in Germany. The tour will be rescheduled to kick off on March 7 in Manchester, England.
Vocalist/bassist Tom Araya has been under the care of a specialist for a back injury, and while he has already made substantial improvement, he is continuing on with doctor-prescribed treatment.
´Right now our main concern must be the full and permanent recovery of Tom, so we have decided to clear the calendar and give him the extra time he needs to concentrate solely on good health.´
