Lamb Of God To Perform On NA Leg Of Slayer’s Final World Tour

Internationally-renowned heavy rock leaders LAMB OF GOD will support metal legends Slayer on leg one, North America, of what will be Slayer‘s final world tour. The 26-date trek will begin on May 10 and visit several major cities – from San Diego to Toronto, Orlando to Minneapolis. Additional support will come from fellow metal heavyweights Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26.

Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD says: “If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor. Slayer gave LAMB OF GOD our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad.
