Slayer and Megadeth To Perform Albums In Its Entirety

Posted by on April 26, 2010

Fans that are going to see Megadeth and Slayer on the American or Canadian Carnage Tour this summer are in for a special treat. However, fans that originally bought tickets to the show but can’t make it to the rescheduled dates are about to get more pissed off when they hear what two out of the Big Four have planned for their co-headlining tour.

Not only will Megadeth perform Rust In Piece in its entirety (which they’ve been doing on their past tour with Testament and Exodus), but Slayer will also follow suit by performing the album Seasons Of The Abyss from start to finish! Slayer has previously performed their entire landmark album Reign In Blood, but this marks the first time the band has done so with any other album from their catalog.

Fan’s tickets to the postponed January/February dates will be honored at the new dates. Testament is still scheduled to serve as openers on the tour. As big of a bummer it was to have to wait till the summer, the two thrash godfathers performing their 1990 releases makes the wait a little more worth it. That is, of course, unless you’re one of the fans who bought tickets to the original dates but can’t make it to the rescheduled shows. Then this update just stings more.
