Slayer Doing Kimmel On Thursday

Slayer will be the musical guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" this Thursday, May 20. This will mark the first appearance the band will make since vocalist/bassist Tom Araya had back surgery earlier this year, and the second time the band has performed on "Kimmel," having made their network television debut on the show in January 2007. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs at 12:05AM ET and PT/11:05PM CT on ABC.

For the telecast, Slayer will perform "World Painted Blood," the title track from their latest album, as well as "Hate Worldwide" over the show's closing credits.

In addition, the band will play three more songs on the show's outdoor stage in front of an SRO crowd. Tickets for this free mini-concert have been gone for weeks.

The "Kimmel" appearance precedes the band's busy summer touring schedule that will kick off on May 26 with extensive touring throughout the UK and Europe, and will include several Sonisphere Festival appearances where Slayer will be part of the Big Four - Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax.

The band will return to North America in late July to co-headline (with Megadeth) the east coast Canadian Carnage tour, and then, starting August 11, the American Carnage tour. Slayer's entire summer tour schedule can be accessed at www.slayer.net
