Slayer announces brief Australian tour with Megadeth

A brief fall tour of Australia featuring San Fransisco death metal legends Slayer and Megadeth has been announced for this fall. The short trek thru the outback will run from Oct. 5th to Oct. 13th. Click Here for the list.

Tickets will be made available on Monday, August 10.

The 2 bands recently did the Canadian Carnage tour back in June, with support from Machine Head and Suicide Silence. Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine, also the original lead guitarist of Metallica, made the following comments about the tour: "The tour with Slayer was really, really cool. I saw Kerry [King, Slayer guitarist]. Kerry was out watching us last night on two separate occasions, and although I didn't get a chance to see them (Slayer), it was really good to know that the ice is melting. I sent them over a couple of peace offerings on the way from Edmonton to Calgary and those guys had a nice trip on the way down in the bus, we flew.

"We just had a great, great time playing with these guys. The audience was over the top - so loud, it was unbelievable. My soundman, Doug Short, who lives up there in Vancouver, said that he's got something on the side of the console called a spectrum analyzer, and that measures the sound and the EQ in the house at all times. So that's we're always constantly trying to improve our sound. Sometimes we have a bad night sound-wise - usually the first night of any tour, because you're just getting your hands on the PA for the first time and you're flying by the seat of your pants because you've got the same new PA in a building, and now all of a sudden, it's full of people. Well, we haven't had a building full of people to play with these systems yet, so usually the first concert is a struggle for them. But Doug had said, while he was wrangling with all of this stuff - and I thought he did a great job - he said, 'The audience was over 106 dB.' And I said, 'That's crazy - that's almost louder than a jet airplane.' And he told me that the last night, when we were in Winnipeg, was even louder. So I'm really excited to be able to have been on this tour with Slayer. They said it couldn't be done, and the power of heavy metal brought us back together."
