LIVE (Retro): Slayer @ Times Union Center, 8/1/2018
Two years ago tonight, August 1, 2018, SLAYER played their last-ever area gig at Albany’s Times Union Center, with LAMB OF GOD, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT and NAPALM DEATH. The band retired from touring approximately a year later.
SLAYER’s first area gig was almost 34 years earlier, November 14, 1984, at the NYC Café II over on Fuller Road in Albany, supporting the ‘Haunting the Chapel’ e.p. Since that time, they placed numerous area gigs over the years at the RPI Fieldhouse, Washington Armory, SPAC, and Glens Falls Civic Center, with bands such as W.A.S.P., RAVEN, HATEBREED, SLIPKNOT, MOTORHEAD, ANTHRAX, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, EXODUS, TESTAMENT and many others. All hail the mighty SLAYER.
