Slayer Farewell Tour to Hit Vancouver

Thrash metal giants Slayer just announced what will be the band’s final tour. Luckily for local metalheads, it includes a Vancouver date.

Slayer will play at the PNE Forum on May 16 with tickets going on sale from 10am on Friday, January 26. Expect them to cost just under 80 bucks plus fees. Visit the band’s website for more ticket info.

The following night, May 17, the band will be in Penticton, offering an opportunity for dedicated fans to do a doubleheader.

After 35 years of a band which helped define a genre, this is big fucking news. Along with Megadeth, Metallica and Anthrax, Slayer is considered one of the “Big 4” of thrash.

After 12 albums and over 3,000 shows, the band announced “the end” in a YouTube video which you can see below.
