Bad news for Slayer fans! Well, it’s also bad news for Megadeth and Testament fans.

American Carnage Tour is postponed to accomodate Slayer’s Tom Araya Back Surgery at the end of January 2010. Tom Araya is scheduled to undergo back surgery called anterior cervical discectomy with fusion, the procedure is relatively routine and has an excellent recovery rate.

Statement from Megadeth.com:
American Carnage Tour Postponed
AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR FEATURING MEGADETH, SLAYER AND TESTAMENT POSTPONED MEGADETH TO ANNOUNCE HEADLINE TOUR FOR MARCH AND APRIL
The much anticipated American Carnage Tour, featuring hard rock behemoths Megadeth, Slayer and Testament has been postponed as Slayer’s bassist/vocalist Tom Araya is in need of back surgery.
While disappointed by the tour’s delay, Megadeth are concerned for Araya and wish him a speedy recovery.
Megadeth are currently scheduling a U.S. headline run for March and April, and are rescheduling the American Carnage tour for Summer ’10. Anyone who has purchased an American Carnage ticket can hold onto it until the new dates are announced. Please visit http://www.megadeth.com for the latest updates.
