Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax extend American Carnage tour

July 12, 2010

Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax have added additional dates to their upcoming American Carnage tour. The extra dates starts from 24 September, supplementing the existing Canadian and American summer dates, as well as European festival appearances.

On Leg Two of American Carnage, Megadeth will continue to roar through its landmark 1990 album Rust in Peace from front to back, while Slayer will rip the roof off by performing its much-lauded Seasons in the Abyss album, which was also released in 1990.  Anthrax recently welcomed back singer Joey Belladonna, who defined the band during its heyday, and now permanently back in the band, will be front-and-center.Kerry King, Slayer
