Slayer to reign in Winnipeg in November

  • Print

THROW up the horns -- Slayer is coming back to Winnipeg.

The pioneering thrash-metal band added seven Canadian dates to its upcoming North American tour, including a stop at the MTS Centre on Nov. 7. Tickets go on sale Friday for $43.50 to $53.50, plus fees, at Ticketmaster.

This is Slayer's first North American tour in two years and first since the death of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman in May. Exodus guitarist Gary Holt will continue to fill in for Hanneman, joining founders Tom Araya (bass/vocals) and Kerry King (guitar). Paul Bostaph -- who drummed for the band from 1992 to 2001 -- is filling in for Dave Lombardo, who was fired from the group earlier this year over a dispute about finances.

The influential Grammy-winning group has released 11 studio albums since 1983. Slayer's last album was 2009's World Painted Blood.
