In what might be the heaviest show you’ll ever witness on a Wednesday, California metal act Slayer has announced they will stop in Vancouver as part of the band’s “last concert tour around the globe” this spring.
The show is set to take place on Wednesday, May 16, at the PNE Forum, and, in addition to Slayer, will feature heavy music doses from supporting acts, Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament.
Their latest (and final) tour comes after a highly storied, almost 40-year career, which included 12 studio albums, multiple live recordings, compilations, live video and two box sets, almost 3,000 concerts around the world, five Grammy nominations and two Grammy awards, an appearance on The Tonight Show, and their own exhibit in the Smithsonian museum.
Tickets for the show are $77 and go on sale this Friday, January 26.
For those concerned that a weekday concert may run a little too late, don’t worry: The doors open at 4 pm and the show is set to kick off at 5:30 pm, which – even with a five-band lineup – should still leave plenty of room for a good night’s rest.
And if that’s not the most metal thing ever, we don’t know what is.
When: Wednesday, May 16, 2018
Time: 5 pm (doors open at 4:30 pm)
Where: PNE Forum – 2901 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Tickets: $77, available online
