"We are pleased to announce that the brutality continues with Lamb Of God supporting Slayer on another leg of their farewell world tour! This is the real thing and is not one to miss. Heavy metal is alive and well and we can see it on the faces and hear it in the voices of the huge crowds filling arenas and amphitheaters everywhere we’ve been. It’s been inspirational to see the energy and dedication of diehard Slayer fans turning out in huge numbers all over the world to support the kings of metal. For Lamb Of God to have been so well received is an honor all its own and we are beyond grateful to join them for another round. Cheers!" - Mark Morton, Lamb of God
“We are very excited to hit the road with Slayer again. It is no secret that Slayer is one of our absolute favorite bands, and even though it is sad to see such an influential and legendary band retiring, it is an absolute honor to have been invited to be a part of their farewell tour.” -- Amon Amarth
Cannibal Corpse comments, “We are extremely honored to be sharing the stage with Amon Amarth, Lamb of God, and of course Slayer this spring on their farewell tour! To be part of this historic event will be something we will never forget.”
