Slayer Cancel World Tour

Just months after Slayer postponed a handful of Canadian tour dates due to singer/bassist Tom Araya’s back problems. The band has been forced to Cancel all 49 dates of their U.S. and European Carnage Tour.

“Tom gave various medical treatments more than a fair shot,” Slayer’s manager Rick Sales explained in a statement. “But they just haven’t handled the problem, so he’s biting the bullet and is scheduled for back surgery at the end of this month.”
