God....damn....it! I could be attending this, yet Slayer just HAD to remove El Paso from their tour! "Venue availability issues" is still shenanigans to me.

I'm not much of a seasons fan. I'd much rather hear Reign or South of Heaven all the way through. The skipped Atlanta anyways.

Dude who the hell wants to hear Slayer play Reign In Blood in it's entirety AGAIN!!!!! Seriously they've done that way too many times. But it's cool that they're playing Seasons though, one of my favorites.

It appears as though they cut a number of dates off their tour which is likely due to Toms recovery.

Yeah I am one of those that are in the minority that likes SITA better than RIB. But I've seen Slayer like about 10 times and wouldn't really warrant a trip to chicago for me. Now Louisville would be a different story.
