Slayer announce rescheduled UK tour dates

Veteran metal band will play a series of shows in May and June

Slayer have announced the rescheduled dates for their upcoming tour of the UK.

The gigs have been cancelled twice already, with bassist Tom Araya’s back problems and subsequent back surgery, forcing the rescheduling.

Now the veteran metal band will start the tour at Leeds Academy on May 26, with shows in Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham and London, set to follow.

Slayer will now play:

Leeds Academy (May 26)
Glasgow Barrowland (27)
Birmingham Academy (29)
Manchester Academy (30)
Nottingham Rock City (31)
London Forum (June 2,3)
