Slayer "Slayed" :lol: last year in my opinion the strongest band of the 2010 festival and it left me wanting more. Oh Sonisphere you know what we want and you deliver! :music-headbanger:

I actually found they were off a beat last year. Slayer just did not seem to be as powerful as they used to be. The attitude did not seem to be the same, but then again as I said in my previous it could be the fact that I am growing tired of them.

It states on Kerrang that it is Sonisphere inclusive. That's a dampener on today's good news.

It says until further notice.

As soon as he is healthy, he will return. Hopefully that is before the Sonisphere dates.

http://www.kerrang.com/blog/2011/02/jeff_hanneman_to_sit_out_slaye.html

Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman has been hospitalised with flesh-eating disease, and will sit out all of Slayer's upcoming tour dates, including Sonisphere here in the UK, until further notice while he recovers.

Doctors believe Hanneman has contracted necrotising fasciitis on his right arm following a suspected spider bite. He will undergo surgery later this week.

The band are currently in the process of recruiting a substitute guitarist.

"Jeff is totally on board with the decision, so we will tour as planned," said guitarist Kerry King in an official statement. "We can't pinpoint what day he'll be back, but it will be as soon as he possibly can. We can't wait for him to get better and get his ass back on the road."


doubt they'd say he wasnt playing if he actually was. or was even fairly likely to.

real shame, won't be the same without him

I'd imagine it's "he's not going to play, baring a miracle" it doesnt sound the sort of thing you can walk off :P

if "necrotizing spider bite" isnt a song on their next album, I'm gonna be pissed off

It means he will not be touring until healthy. Nothing more and nothing less. If he is healthy by Soni, then he will be here.

If not, well then he is not. Hope he gets better. No way to tell how long it will take.

http://www.avclub.com/articles/update-slayer-guitarist-backs-out-of-shows-for-inc,51825/

Slayer’s upcoming tour—which includes dates at the previously announced The Big 4 after Coachella on the Australian Soundwave Tour kicking off Feb. 26—will unfortunately not include founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman, as he’s currently suffering from the flesh-eating disease known as necrotizing fasciitis. The rare infection eats away at the skin, fat, and bones of the inflicted, and Hanneman, who is believed to have caught it from a spider bite, will have to undergo surgery on his right arm to treat it. Slayer, of course, previously had to cancel a round of tour dates because vocalist Tom Araya messed up his neck and back by headbanging too much, and thus continues to have the most badass possible reasons to cancel a show. Really, Kings Of Leon could learn a thing or two. Anyway, if you’re rushing to name your grindcore band or next prog-metal song “Necrotizing Fasciitis,” don’t bother.
UPDATE: We've received word from the band's publicist that Hanneman is already recuperating at home, undergoing follow-up procedures like skin grafts, and is expected to make a full recovery. So as of now, the only dates he is likely to miss are those immediately coming up in Australia. This is also badass.

But who knows, lets just hope he has a good recovery no matter how long it takes.

Gary Holt is his replacement. I actually hope Jeff isn't going to be able to play Sonisphere, because Gary's way cooler

I hope he's okay necrotizing fasciitis is serious stuff. My old man had it 4 years ago and never really recovered fully. The stuff they have to do to you is horrible. Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

SLAYER Frontman Hospitalized In Australia; Sydney Concert Canceled - Feb. 26, 2011

SLAYER has canceled its appearance at the Sydney, Australia stop of the Soundwave festival after the band's basist/vocalist Tom Araya was admitted to the hospital where he will be kept overnight. The Sydney appearance on Sunday, February 27 would have marked SLAYER's second show on the annual festival tour. No further details are currently available regarding Araya's condition or the exact nature of his ailment.

Araya underwent back surgery in early 2010 which forced the band off the road for a period of several months. He stated about the procedure in an interview, "I apparently had compressed discs on my neck which caused bone spurs. The compressed discs were causing compression on my nerves that was affecting my left side, and basically that was it. I was in Australia, and that's when I... I mean it was severe pain. I had had a case of pain here and there, but this was non-stop. It got to a point where by the time I got to Japan, I hooked up with a doctor, and was able to make an appointment. As soon as I got home, I went and saw him. I had three discs that were compressed, and they removed them, and put a plate in."

Regarding what the surgery itself entailed, Araya said, "It entailed them cutting a small little hole in my throat, moving everything to one side, clearing out cartilage in between the discs, putting bone spacers in there, and putting the plate in. That's a two-to-two-and-a-half-hour procedure. Yeah, it was pretty serious. You could say I'm a true metalhead now, I guess (laughs)."

SLAYER is currently on the road without founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who underwent emergency surgery on his right arm late last month after contracting a serious infection, possibly caused by a spider bite. He is now recuperating at home and is expected to make a full recovery. He will return to the SLAYER lineup as soon as he has fully recovered.

Hanneman's temporary replacement for the Soundwave festival is Gary Holt from veteran San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS.
