Slayer announce Sidewave show

Slayer have announced a solitary Sidewave show in Sydney. The band’s gig at the Big Top at Luna Park on February 25 will hopefully make amends for their last minute cancellation at Sydney’s Soundwave festival in 2011.

Singer Tom Araya was hospitalised in Sydney on the day of the festival with Soundwave promoter AJ Maddah announcing the news to fans just before 6pm. Araya’s unexplained illness wasn’t the only medical issue for Slayer on their last Australian tour. Guitarist Jeff Hanneman missed the tour as he was recovering from surgery on his right arm following a spider bite that left him with a flesh-eating virus. The metal veterans toured with Gary Holt from the Californian heavy metal band Exodus standing in for Hanneman.

The thrash metal icons – and members of the legendary Big Four, along with Metallica, Anthrax and Megadeth – marked the 25th anniversary of their classic Reign In Blood album in 2011, and are gearing up to release their 12th album in 2013. Earlier this year, drummer Dave Lombardo told The Nervous Breakdown that the band’s new material sounds like, well, Slayer: “Traditional fans will be pacified and non-traditional fans will be like, ‘Again?’”

Slayer’s most recent album was 2009’s World Painted Blood.

Slayer Sidewave show:

Monday, February 25 – Big Top Luna Park, Sydney

Tickets on sale Wednesday, December 19

I guess they are just making up to Sydney for missing the SW set 2 years ago. I will be happy enough at SW.
