nternationally-renowned heavy rock leaders LAMB OF GOD will support headlining metal legends Slayer, along with fellow supporting death metal group Behemoth, on what is set to be this summer’s most-anticipated heavy music tour. The six-week expedition will rage across North America beginning July 12 in Bemidji, MN, winding up in Phoenix, AZ on August 20.
Slayer and LAMB OF GOD will also play Wisconsin’s Rock Fest 2017 (7/13) and Rock USA 2017 (7/15), and then meet up with Behemoth at the Chicago Open Air Festival on July 16.  Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 3; log on to http://www.slayer.net/tour or http://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!”
