Slayer to Play Municipal Auditorium July 30

LEFT TO RIGHT: Tom Araya, Gary Holt, Paul Bostaph, Kerry King

It’s only been a year since thrash metal pioneers Slayer last played Nashville, but, after a more than 15 year gap before that, we certainly won’t say no to a return visit so soon. Set to hit the road this summer with Lamb of God and Behemoth, the legendary band are back July 30, this time in the larger Municipal Auditorium after a turn at War Memorial. Still out in support of brutal 2015 12th album Repentless, Slayer are the latest “Big Four” metal act to hit Music City in recent years, and part of a great wave of national metal making their way more often to Nashville (of the titans of the scene, only Metallica have been skipping us for the better part of the last decade). Tickets officially go on sale Friday, March 10 at 10 a.m. CST here, but various pre-sales and VIP options are already underway!
