CANADIAN CARNAGE FEATURING SLAYER AND MEGADETH WITH SPECIAL GUESTS TESTA
**NEW DATE – NEW VENUE**
CANADIAN CARNAGE FEATURING
SLAYER AND MEGADETH
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS TESTAMENT
THURSDAY, JULY 29, 2010
THE MOLSON AMPHITHEATRE - TORONTO
Doors: 6:00PM Show: 6:40PM
Slayer, Megadeth and Testament are thrilled to announce the new, confirmed routing for their North American Tour, which will commence with the rescheduled Canadian Carnage East dates in July. Tickets purchased for the Canadian Carnage shows when they first went on sale last year will be honoured for these rescheduled dates. Complete information regarding ticket sales can be found at HYPERLINK "http://www.slayer.net" www.slayer.net • HYPERLINK "http://www.megadeth.com" www.megadeth.com and HYPERLINK "http://www.testamentlegiions.com" www.testamentlegiions.com
The Canadian Carnage Tour, previously scheduled to take place in February, had to be put on hold due to Slayer's vocalist/bassist, Tom Araya's ongoing, minimally-invasive treatments for what was diagnosed as a Cervical Radiculopathy, an occupational hazard for the rocker who is known for aggressively swinging his long mane of hair while performing. Right after the first of the year, Araya made the difficult decision to undergo a surgical procedure, called an Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion, a relatively routine practice with an excellent recovery rate. That surgery took place last week.
"The doctors said that Tom's surgery went very smoothly and was a resounding success. He's home now, doing really well, and his recuperation is underway," said Rick Sales, long-time Slayer manager.
"Tom called me shortly after the surgery took place," added Slayer's Kerry King, "and said that whatever the doctor did, he already felt better than he had in a long time."
The Carnage Tour will mark the first time that Slayer, Megadeth and Testament will have toured North America together since 1991's epic "Clash of the Titans" tour, making this truly a "must-see" event.
Slayer and Megadeth have already massacred Western Canada, with four explosive dates in June 2009. According to various press outlets last summer: "It was a night of thrash impossible to trash..." "Tales about war, death, destruction, Satan, aliens and serial killers have never been so much fun..." "The two heavy metal heavyweights...went head-to-head on a level playing field. Both bands brought their 'A' game. And the results were anything but pretty - unless you include pretty freakin' loud and pretty freakin' awesome."
All tickets purchased for the originally scheduled Feb 19, 2010 show at the Air Canada Centre will be honoured for the re-scheduled July 29, 2010 show at The Molson Amphitheatre.
Ticketholders who have purchased tickets for the originally scheduled ACC show will be re-located to specified sections on a first-come-first-serve seating basis upon entry day-of-show at The Molson Amphitheatre.
