SLAYER Promise To Perform "Old School" Set On Current National Tour

Slayer 2013, as I like to call 'em, are about to kick-off their first national tour since the tragic passing of Jeff Hanneman. A few days ago, they promised that their show at LA's Palladium, a venue that they were barred from for 25 years after an insane set, would host "Old School Slayer Night" with the band playing all the old classics. Now they've decided to make the whole tour an "old school Slayer night."

The band allegedly were having so much fan jamming on the old tunes, they wanted to do the set the entire tour. The tour will consist of tracks from 1983's Show No Mercy, 1985's Hell Awaits, 1986's Reign In Blood 1988's South of Heaven, and my favorite non-Reign album, Seasons In The Abyss.

"The final set list is still coming together," added Araya, "but we're going to give the fans what amounts to 'decades of aggression.' It's going to be a great night of music and moshing for everyone."

This makes me far more interested in catching the band. Hopefully, they'll focus on some deep cuts off those older albums that fans haven't heard in a while. Will this make you more likely to check out the tour?

The band's tour with Gojira and 4arm kicks off tonight. Get dates here.

SiriusXM Liquid Metal will be broadcasting Slayer's set live tonight with replays throughout next week. Here's the info on that.
