Slayer to Play First Shows in 5 Years at Riot Fest and Louder Than Life

Slayer haven’t performed live since wrapping up their farewell tour in November 2019, but that’s about to change soon. In September, the beloved thrash metal band will headline Louisville’s Louder Than Life and also perform at Riot Fest in Chicago. The full Riot Fest lineup has not yet been revealed, but you can see the Louder Than Life poster below.

Louder Than Life is produced by independent promoters Danny Wimmer Presents, and the company’s founder, Danny Wimmer, said in a press statement: “We’re thrilled to announce that Slayer will be reuniting for an earth-shattering performance at Louder Than Life. I was at their last show at the Forum in 2019 and have been working since then to bring them back to the Louder stage! With over 140 bands on five stages, we’re celebrating our 10th Louder Than Life with the biggest lineup yet!”

Slayer last released Repentless in 2015. They played over 100 shows on their farewell tour, which began in May 2018 and concluded in November 2019.
