Slayer vocalist Tom Araya was advised by his doctors not to perform at the band's October 11th show at the Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide, Australia, due to severe laryngitis. Slayer and the crew were on route to Adelaide with the full intention of performing but were forced to cancel the date due to doctor-mandated rest. Co-headliners Megadeth performed an extended set at the Thebarton.
The remainder of the shows will proceed as planned, with Slayer and Megadeth performing at Challenge Stadium in Perth this Tuesday 13th October, and Slayer performing a full set including the classic "Reign in Blood" album in its entirety at Luna Park Sydney this Thursday 15th October.
Slayer extends an apology to their Adelaide fans for their cancellation.
Megadeth frontman, Dave Mustaine, comments: "I am sorry that Tom lost his voice, and he is such a dymanic singer that there is not really anyone who can join them and do what Mr. Araya does. I did hope that Kerry would have be able to do a song when we were in Adelaide, but I guess I will just have to settle on how good things are for now and be happy with that."
