    Slayer’s farewell tour continues to grow, with the legendary thrash metal band announcing today that they’ve added a new North American leg to their 2019 itinerary. The new run of dates will see the band supported by Lamb of God, Amon Amarth, and Cannibal Corpse.

    The spring jaunt marks the tour’s fifth leg overall, and third North American leg, kicking off May 2nd at the Ak-Chin Amphitheatre in Phoenix, Arizona, and running through a May 25th gig at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts. It will be sandwiched in between the tour’s fourth leg, which will cover Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and the Philippines, and the sixth leg, which will see the band returning to Europe.

    It has also been revealed that Slayer will be one of the headliners at the 2019 edition of Heavy Montreal in July. As of now, they are the only band announced for the Canadian festival.
