The World Painted Blood Tour was a concert tour by Slayer.

Gary Holt of Exodus was announced as guitarist Jeff Hanneman's temporary replacement[1] on March 13, to April 4, 2011, and joined again on April 23, 2011.

Cannibal Corpse guitarist Pat O'Brien filled in for Holt when Holt left the European tour to play with his own band Exodus at the Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile on April 10, 2011. Holt's last show with Slayer was on April 4, 2011 in Padova, Italy, O'Brien joined the band for the April 6, 2011 show in Croatia, and finished the European Carnage dates on April 14, 2011 in the Netherlands.[2]

The European Carnage Tour was co-headlined with Megadeth.[3] This was the first time in 21 years since the Clash of the Titans tour in Europe with Testament and Suicidal Tendencies that Slayer and Megadeth had toured the continent together.

On the end of March, 2011, Slayer announced a U.S. tour with Rob Zombie and Exodus.[4] The tour name is Hell on Earth 2011, started on July 20 and ended on August 6, 2011.

On April 23, Slayer was part of the first Big Four show in the United States. Hanneman rejoined to play the last two songs of the concert.[5] It would be Hanneman's last-ever performance with Slayer before his death in 2013.
