Slayer play final show of farewell tour: Photos, Video + Setlist

Music

Slayer ended their touring career on Saturday night, playing to a sold-out crowd at The Forum in Los Angeles. The concert put an end to the legendary metal band’s extensive farewell tour, which launched a year and a half ago.

Saturday night’s show was the second of a two-night stand at The Forum, with the thrash masters delivering a 20-song set. The night ended with “Raining Blood”, “Mandatory Suicide”, and set-closer “Angel of Death”. When the music was over, the band members remained on the stage for several minutes, soaking in the adulation from the fans.

Singer Tom Araya addressed the crowd, saying, “Thank you. Thank you very much. I want to thank you for sharing your time with us. Time is precious, so I want to thank you for sharing that time with us.”

He added, “I’m gonna miss you guys. But the most important thing is I want to thank you for being a part of my life. Goodnight. You guys be safe.”

As Metal Injection reports, the show was attended by a number of metal luminaries, with Metallica’s Kirk Hammett posting a pic of himself at the concert with King Diamond and hip-hop star Post Malone. Celebs at the concert included metalhead actors Jason Momoa and Joe Manganiello, as well as comedian Bill Burr and others.

Slayer were joined on the bill by Primus, Ministry, and Philip Anselmo & The Illegals, who had all supported the final leg of the farewell outing.
