Starting at 6:06 AM, Slayer began selling tickets to their tour with Lamb Of God and Behemoth for only $6.66 and will continue to sell them until midnight at this special International Day Of Slayer price. There will be a free Slayer gift with purchase (we have no idea what these are, but we expect the shrunken heads of the righteous!).
You can find dates and purchase your ticket at the Slayer ticket page. A short list of tour dates is below:
In addition, Liquid Metal is playing Slayer every hour along with interviews with the band members. Listen for chances to enter a special contest they have cooked up -- with the blood of the holy -- including a trip to Las Vegas:
To celebrate this year's IDoS, SiriusXM's Liquid Metal (Ch. 40) is playing SLAYER every hour from 12Midnight ET 6/6 through to 3AM ET 6/7, and the channel's Jose Mangin will be airing interviews with the band members.
SiriusXM is also hosting a special giveaway where one winner + a guest will receive round trip air transportation to Las Vegas for SLAYER's August 4 show, plus two nights at a Vegas hotel, two tickets to the show, a meet'n'greet with members of SLAYER and $200 ground transportation.
But this prize package just gets better: the winner will also score his or her very own Tom Araya Signature Bass TA-204 FRX model, PLUS the brand new Kerry King B.C. Rich signature guitar, the KKW30 model, which is not yet available in stores. Mangin will be on hand in Las Vegas as the winner's personal host/escort.
More details are available on the Liquid Metal Facebook page where you can demand that the DJs play even more Slayer. On today of all days, that is an entirely reasonable request.
Thanks to Slayer for supporting this killer holiday in which heavy metal fans (and Slayer fans) can celebrate our culture and music!
