Slayer announces postponement of UK/European Tour

slayerDue to a back injury incurred by Vocalist/ Bassist Tom Aray, Slayer has announced that they will be postponing their UK/European tour. The tour was set to start November 18th in the UK and take the band throughout Europe into December. The tour will now be scheduled to kick off March 7th in Manchester, England.

Slayer also announced last week that they will be postponing the Canadian Carnage East Coast tour that they are to co-headline with Megadeth to February of 2010, but no dates on this one yet.
