"We're having such a great time rehearsing this 'Old School' set, we've decided to play it on every one of our upcoming tour dates," announced Slayer's Kerry King.

Holed up in Las Vegas rehearsing for a five-week North American tour that kicks off at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tonight, Slayer has been rehearsing many of the band's most classic and fan-favorite songs, all of which were originally written and released between the group's inception and the 1990 disc "Seasons In The Abyss."

Slayer's "Old School Slayer Night" set will include tracks from 1983's "Show No Mercy," 1985's "Hell Awaits," the genre-defining "Reign In Blood" (1986), 1988's "South of Heaven," and "Seasons in the Abyss."

"The final set list is still coming together," added Araya, "but we're going to give the fans what amounts to 'decades of aggression.' It's going to be a great night of music and moshing for everyone."
