Hi, what are you looking for?


Listen to A Full SLAYER Show From 1986

No video is available.

The Sacramento Music Archive has just uploaded a (mostly) full Slayer show recorded at the El Dorado Saloon on November 5, 1986. So about a month out from the release of Reign in Blood and potentially without drummer Dave Lombardo, who left the band in late 1986. Lombardo was filled in for briefly by Whiplash drummer Tony Scaglione.

Here's what The Sacramento Music Archive's Shayne Stacy had to say about the show.

"Thanks to Ken Doose for posting this flyer yesterday and starting some conversation around this show.

"As I have talked about before, my friend Matt Polish was friends with the band. He toured with them in 1985 and by this time, he had gone to L.A. to hang with Jeff multiple times. So we got there early and went right back onto the NEW tour bus supplied by Def American. We step in there, and here are the guys in Slayer partying hard, and listening to… rap music? W

"We were totally dumbfounded- what the fuck is this? It turned out that they had an advance tape of Beastie Boys' License to Ill and they were BLASTING it as they partied on the bus. They were reciting every lyric. This was months before the Beasties were well known, and before Anthrax' rap collaborations. Rap and metal at the time did NOT mix. It was one of the most hilariously jarring moments I have ever experienced. After an hour or so of goofing off, they got dressed and played this show. So funny.

"No encores were recorded. I don't know why."
