Lamb of God to Support Slayer on New Tour

Lamb of God announced the news they will be hitting the road to support Slayer, alongside Behemoth as well, for this summer’s most anticipated metal tour.  For six weeks, these bands will rage across North American starting July 12th  in Bemidji, MN and finishing up August 20th in Phoenix.

The tour dates will include Wisconsin’s Rock Fest 2017 (7/13) and Rock USA 2017 (7/15) for Lamb of God and Slayer and then the bands meet up with Behemoth at the Chicago Open Air Festival July 16. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 3; log on to www.slayer.net/tour or www.lamb-of-god.com for all purchasing details.

Kerry King of Slayer says:

“As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it! Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start. That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends – bands as well as fanatical fans! Let the festivities begin!”

Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD says,

“It’s been a while since we’ve toured with the almighty Slayer and even longer since we’ve hit the road with our friends in Behemoth – I can’t wait! This tour is gonna be the feel-good event of the summer- the gigs are gonna be like the Haight-Ashbury during the Summer of Love in ’67! Okay, so that’s complete bullsh*t, it’s gonna be absolutely nothing like that, so don’t show up with flowers in your hair looking for free hugs or anything stupid like that. It will definitely be a good f**king time though (as long as your definition of a good time means brutal, caustic, and hideously loud music) – see ya there!”

Adam “Nergal” Darskiof Behemoth adds,

“It is with the utmost pride we are announcing the Slayer, LAMB OF GOD and Behemoth summer tour! We are beyond excited to be joining this bill with these living legends and… our friends one more time! We are also stoked about coming back to North American shores for the last time before kicking off the next album cycle. Come and join this EXTREME metal feast with us!”
