American Carnage With Slayer, Megadeth and Testament Is Back On, Tour Dates Rescheduled

A couple of months ago, I wrote about the American Carnage tour and due to Tom Araya needing to undergo back surgery the tour was postponed.  Araya is recovering well:

“The doctors said that Tom’s surgery went very smoothly and was a resounding success,” said Rick Sales, long-time Slayer manager.  “He’s home now, doing really well, and he said the numbness in his fingers had already diminished considerably.”

Shortly after the surgery, Slayer’s Kerry King received a text from Tom:  “Awake and feeling good, actually whatever he did, it feels better.”

Needless to say, I think metal fans everywhere are thrilled to here Araya is recovering well.

As a result of the success from Araya’s surgery, the American Carnage American Tour is rescheduled with Megadeth and Slayer co-headlining the tour.  The tour will commence with the rescheduled Canadian Carnage East dates in Quebec City on Friday, July 23.  Slayer will then head to Europe for a run of festival dates, returning to kick off the American Carnage leg in Albany, NY on August 11.   American Carnage will play 26 dates across the United States and Eastern Canada up to the Labor Day weekend, ending in Portland, OR on September 4.  Testament will be Special Guest on all shows.  Tickets purchased for the American Carnage shows when they first went on sale late last year will be honored for these rescheduled dates.
