Rob Zombie to Tour With Slayer
Tue, 29 Mar 2011 11:30:21
Get ready for hell on earth, because for the first time since they toured together on Ozzfest 1999, Rob Zombie and Slayer are teaming up to hit the road, bringing a glorious purgatory to fans in 12 North American cities. The co-headline trek kicks off Wednesday, July 20th at the Sovereign Center in Reading, PA. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 1 at 10:00 AM local time. The tour hits Canada for the most part, so our headbanging neighbors to the North have all the luck.
"We haven't toured with Zombie since Ozzfest 1999, so you can expect no less than 'hell on earth,'" said Slayer's Kerry King. "Total sonic annihilation and a visual bludgeoning. Bring your own body bag..."
"Total destruction on stage and off is what this combination promises," states Zombie, "Seriously, how much more Hell could you ask for? The answer is none more Hell." Hades it is, I see.
Both Zombie and Slayer will present their full headline sets at every show, and both bands will close shows over the course of the tour. San Francisco's thrash-metal band Exodus has been confirmed to open all shows.

20 Sovereign Center, Reading, PA
