Early reports suggested that the incredible lineup of Slayer and Megadeth on tour would happen this fall. However, the bands have just announced a short string of tour dates dubbed "Canadian Carnage" starting in June. In addition to Slayer and Megadeth performing together for the first time in more than 15 years on this co-headlining event, "Canadian Carnage" will also feature Machine Head and Suicide Silence. As co-headliners, Megadeth and Slayer will each close two of the four shows.

Tickets will go on sale Saturday, May 2, and will be available at all Ticketmaster outlets and at Ticketmaster online.

Attendees of "Canadian Carnage" will be treated to Slayer performing "Psychopathy Red" live on stage. Slayer plans to release the new album in July, in tandem with the Mayhem Festival tour Slayer is co-headlining with Marilyn Manson.

Megadeth is currently recording their 12th studio album in Los Angeles with Andy Sneap. The disc is scheduled for release later this summer to coincide with a full scale world tour.

The Canadian Carnage tour dates are as follows:

June 24 GM Place, Vancouver, BC
June 26 Rexall, Edmonton, AB
June 27 Saddledome, Calgary, AB
June 29 MTS Centre, Winnipeg, MB

I dont see this tour going down due to comments King over the years as well as his general indifference towards Mustaine.
