“It’s always super fun for us to tour with Anthrax. Frank is one of my best friends in the biz. Put that together with Death Angel, and fans will probably see the best package this year. See you there,” said Slayer’s Kerry King in a press release.

Fans will hear their favorite Slayer songs from the band’s 30-year plus discography, as well as a few of the newer songs from Repentless, named  Metal Album of the Year by Guitar World. Slayer and Anthrax stormed through Europe together last fall.

“We are very excited to tour again with our fellow kings Slayer on a thrash/metal extravaganza,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante in a press release. “Two of the big four — now that’s a night of metal for all the kings and queens!”

“We are thrilled and honoured to be part of this amazing North American touring package. Slayer/Anthrax/Death Angel — it just looks, sounds and feels right. This will be Death Angel’s first-ever tour with Slayer, something we’ve hungered for our entire career. And we will bring that hunger to the stage every night, so get there early because this will be a show not to be missed; from the first note of the night until the very last! Metal is alive, hungry, thriving, and coming for you,” added Mark Osegueda from Death Angel, in the press release.

Tickets are $69 and $79 (plus additional fees) and available in person at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC) or Wine Country Visitor Centre Charge by phone at 1-877-SOEC-TIX (763-2849).
