SLAYER‘s »Final World Tour« began on May 10, 2018 with the band’s intention to play as many places as possible, to make it easy for the fans to see one last SLAYER show and say goodbye. By the time the 18-month trek wraps on November 30, the band will have completed seven tour legs plus a series of one- off major summer festivals, performing more than 140 shows in 30 countries and 40 U.S. states.

SLAYER‘s »Final World Tour« has been a wild ride. Three bus drivers, four truck drivers, and a crew of 32 have traveled all over the world to set the stage for this farewell. At most shows, SLAYER‘s pyro expert set off 160 pounds of propane and 10 liters of 99% isopropyl alcohol, prompting the Phoenix New Times reviewer to comment on the “eyebrow-singeing pyrotechnics that could be felt even 10 rows behind the pit.” InToronto, one diehard fan was ejected from the concert before SLAYER took the stage, so jumped into Lake Ontario (that surrounds the Budweiser Arena) and swam back to the venue. The Tampa Bay Times‘ Jay Cridlin wrote, “Beginning with the throttling opener ‘Repentless,’ SLAYER tore through their set like a flaming cigarette boat across the river Styx, charring up a vicious circle pit by the stage,” and Detroit‘s Gary Graffnoted in his Oakland Press review the “10,000 headbangers who skipped the »Game Of Thrones« finale to pay homage to the pioneering quartet.”“The sheer physicality of their show was something to behold and was yet another indication that while the band may be calling it a career, they are going out on top, playing at their absolute best,” wrote AndyLindquist for the SFSonic, and Guy D’Astolfo with the Youngtown Vindicatorended his review with this: “After the final note, Tom Araya stood alone, scanning the crowd…forging a mental imprint of the moment. After a minute or two, he went to the microphone and said, ‘I’m going to miss you guys.’ Then he exited and the lights went up.”
