According to his wife Sandra, Slayer frontman Tom Araya is feeling much better after he was hospitalized following the band's performance in Brisbane, Australia, forcing the band to cancel the next show in Sydney as a result. Araya is expected to be well enough to perform at the next Soundwave show in Melbourne, which will take place on March 4th. Sandra Araya's message reads as follows:

"SPOKE WITH TOM =) He's feeling much better! it will be a few days before test results come back... That's all I can say for now! whoo hoo!

"Tom does not have a ear infection! Not sure who came up with this, but it is not true... They are waiting on test results... If [the ear-infection explanation] is coming from the promoter, I am sure he is only saying what he was told!"
