Metal legends Slayer have confirmed ‘The Final Campaign,’ the seventh and final leg of their farewell world trek. The last dates go down in November in the U.S. with a total of 18 stops. The tour will sport killer support in the form of Primus, Ministry and Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, who will be “performing a vulgar display of Pantera.”

“Slayer’s Final World Tour began on May 10, 2018 with the band’s intention to play as many places as possible, to make it easy for the fans to see one last Slayer show and say goodbye,” states a press release. “By the time the 18-month trek wraps on November 30, the band will have completed seven tour legs plus a series of one-off major summer festivals, performing more than 140 shows in 30-countries and 40 U.S. states.”

The official announcement continues to say, “Slayer’s Final World Tour has been a wild ride. Three bus drivers, four truck drivers, and a crew of 32 have traveled all over the world to set the stage for this farewell. At most shows, Slayer’s pyro expert set off 160 pounds of propane and 10 liters of 99% isopropyl alcohol, prompting the Phoenix New Times reviewer to comment on the “eyebrow-singeing pyrotechnics that could be felt even 10 rows behind the pit.” In Toronto, one diehard fan was ejected from the concert before Slayer took the stage, so he jumped into Lake Ontario (that surrounds the Budweiser Arena) and swam back to the venue. ”

Slayer‘s last tour is bookended by Asheville, NC and Los Angeles, CA stops and includes a show at New York City’s famous Madison Square Garden on November 9 [TIX].
