Slayer Confirmed to Play Two Historic Venues After 25-Year Absence, Gojira + 4Arm to Support

Slayer have just confirmed that they will play two iconic venues that they haven’t performed at in 25 years, and to make the news even more juicy, Gojira and 4Arm will be going along for the ride. 

The group has announced an Oct. 28 performance at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles and a Madison Square Garden show in New York City on Nov. 27. Guitarist Kerry King, who took part in the Jeff Hanneman memorial tribute at the Hollywood Palladium earlier this summer, spoke of how many shows Slayer played at the venue early in their career before being banned for a period of time. The Palladium also underwent a several-year renovation recently, which also could have affected the band’s longtime absence from the venue.

Registered Slayer fan club members will receive a special email offering them “first access” to purchase tickets for the two special dates. A pre-sale for the event begins tomorrow (Aug. 6). Full ticketing info will be available via the band’s website.

Slayer’s current lineup consists of frontman Tom Araya, guitarist Kerry King, Exodus guitarist Gary Holt (filling in for the late Jeff Hanneman) and drummer Paul Bostaph. This will mark the band’s first performance in New York since the “Big Four” show at Yankee Stadium in September 2011 and Slayer’s first Los Angeles show since 2010’s Jagermeister Tour.

It should also be noted that Araya and King have been working out new material and hope to spend some time in the studio prior to Slayer’s fall dates!
