Slayer World

(PR) The mighty SLAYER - Tom Araya/bass, vocals/ Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman/guitars, Dave Lombardo/drums - whose new album, "Christ Illusion" debuted at #5 on the U.S. Billboard charts last week, will kick off its 2006 international concert tour playing two of England's biggest annual music festivals - Leeds on Friday, August 25 and Reading on Sunday, August 27. In addition to the UK appearances, the international dates will have Slayer headlining major outdoor festivals as well as their own concerts in South America, Mexico, Singapore, and Japan. The South American dates will mark Slayer's first tour there in more than eight years. [Not in this PR but the band has pulled their planned show at the Monterrey Metal Fest where they were to co-headline with Stryper]

Leg Two of Slayer's international concert tour will kick off October 20 in Holland when Slayer tops the bill on the European edition of the "Unholy Alliance Tour: Preaching to the Perverted." The core lineup of the European "Unholy Alliance Tour" will be Slayer, In Flames, Children of Bodom, Lamb of God, and Thine Eyes Bleed, and is the first major festival to tour outside of the United States. The U.S. "Unholy Alliance Tour" (which Slayer headlined with Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Mastodon and Thine Eyes Bleed) stormed across North America in June and July.
