SLAYER Manager Says Band Is Definitely Done Touring, Maybe Not Done With Career
Slayer's longtime manager Rick Sales recently said in an interview that Slayer's final tour doesn't mean the end of the band, just the end of touring. In a recent interview with The Los Angeles Times, Sales reiterated his position that Slayer will likely continue on in some capacity, and that he's got "a couple of ideas [for future projects], but we haven't made any decisions."
Sales does add that he doesn't sense the band wants to continue touring after this. We don't need another Motley Crue situation.
"I'm not sensing that at all.Let's put the touring to bed. I've got a couple of ideas [for future projects], but we haven't made any decisions. Right now, they're preoccupied with the end, and I imagine it's emotional. It's emotional for me."
It's pretty well-known at this point that guitarist Kerry King wants to do more music, and would like to release the leftovers from the band's 2016 album Repentless. Though who knows what Sales and his team have up their sleeves in terms of legacy projects either. It's worth noting too that he keeps saying "the end of touring" too, and not the end of performing.
Slayer only have three shows left. Here are links to the best ticket deals:
