SLAYER Frontman Undergoes Gallbladder Surgery, Band Reschedule Early 'Unholy Alliance' Dates - May 10, 2006 The SLAYER-headlined "Unholy Alliance Tour: Preaching to the Perverted", featuring LAMB OF GOD, CHILDREN OF BODOM, MASTODON, and THINE EYES BLEED, and originally slated to launch on June 6 (06/06/06) in San Diego, CA will now kick off on June 10 at the East Peoria Convention Center in Peoria, IL.

Postponed and rescheduled shows are:

** San Diego, CA: originally June 6 at the Sports Arena, now rescheduled for July 20 at the Sports Arena

** Las Vegas, NV: originally June 7 at The Orleans, now rescheduled for July 24 at The Orleans

** Denver, CO: originally June 9 at the Fillmore Auditorium, now rescheduled for July 26 at the Fillmore Auditorium

In addition, two sold-out "warm-up" dates — June 2 at New Oasis in Reno, NV, and June 3 at Senator Theatre in Chico, CA — will be rescheduled to take place following the Denver date at the end of July.

Tickets purchased for all postponed dates will be honored at the rescheduled concerts.

The postponement of the tour's start date is due to SLAYER bassist/vocalist Tom Araya's minor gallbladder surgery which successfully took place late last week. Araya is doing fine, recuperating at home.

With the tour's kick off now June 10, Six-Six-O-Six will still be a special day for SLAYER fans. On that day, SLAYER will release "Eternal Pyre", a limited-edition EP that will preview "Cult", a brand-new song from the band's as-yet-untitled new album (due out July 25), a live version of "Dead Skin Mask", recorded at last year's With Full Force Festival, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the new album, and, originally available only on 1995's now out-of-print "Live Intrusion" video, a five-minute clip of the SLAYER fan who carved the band's name into his forearm.

"Eternal Pyre" will be available exclusively at all Hot Topic stores.

The members of SLAYER — Araya, Kerry King/guitars, Jeff Hanneman/guitars, and drummer Dave Lombardo — are in the final stages of completing their new album, SLAYER's first new studio album since Lombardo rejoined the band in 2001. The new album is being produced by Josh Abraham and executive produced by Rick Rubin and will be released on SLAYER's longtime label, Rubin's American Recordings. Titles for some of the album's new songs include "Cult", "Consfearcy", "Eyes of the Insane", and "Jihad". In a recent interview with MTV, Araya said about the new album, "It's fast — maybe faster than anything we've done before. No one's going to be disappointed. It's going to be brutal."

Needless to say, the East Peoria Convention Center is not in Peoria, just like East Chicago isn't in Illinois.

I wish there were still concerts at the Madison Theater in downtown Peoria. That was a terrific venue, and Slayer almost literally brought the place down in 2002.

I had gall bladder surgery at 28 yrs old which was considered unusually young.Though I had a family history of it.It's not an old persons problem unless you call 40 yrs, old.Which some of you probably do.It is more common in women though.It's not that painful as it used to be.Years ago you had to where a clostemy bag and you'd be laid up in the hospital for awhile.They'd have to slice you open.Now they take a laser and make three holes in you.One to stick a probe in to find it.It's done as an outpatient surgery so you don't even have to spend a night in the hospital.Tom better hope he doesn't have gallstones like I did.The procedure for that sucks.I had to have a tube stuck down my throat into my large intestine.You can't be put out for it so they give you demoral to make you go to sleep.I woke up in the middle of it and started freaking out trying to take that fkn thing out.So they gave me more demoral so I went back to sleep.Not alot of fun.
