SLAYER Explain Myrtle Beach Cancellation

A representative at SLAYER's management company has sent the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the band's cancellation of their scheduled headlining appearance in Myrtle Beach, SC Wednesday night (Sept. 1):

"Tom Araya, SLAYER's bassist/vocalist, was treated and released from a Myrtle Beach, NC hospital on Wednesday after experiencing severe pain due to a kidney stone. SLAYER — who has had to cancel only one show in the band's twenty-one-year career — was unable to play the Myrtle Beach headlining 'Off-Fest' concert, but did play yesterday's [Sept. 2] Ozzfest show in Tampa. With the final Ozzfest show on Saturday in West Palm Beach cancelled due to Hurricane Frances, Araya will be able to go home early and be treated by his personal physician."

SLAYER will headline this fall's Jägermeister Music Tour beginning on October 29 in Springfield, Missouri. Support at all dates will come from KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and MASTODON. A listing of all the tour dates is available at this location.
