Heavy Metal Power Groups to Rock El Paso County Coliseum

Slayer is ready to thrash the Sun City. The longtime, popular heavy metal band, joined by Anthrax and Death Angel, will rock the El Paso County Coliseum (4100 E. Paisano) at 7 p.m. Oct. 27.

The trio of rockers kicked off the North American tour in September.

“It’s always super fun for us to tour with Anthrax,” said Kerry King, one of Slayer’s original members. “Frank (Bello) is one of my best friends in the biz. Put that together with Death Angel, and fans will probably see the best package this year. See you there.”

Fans will hear their favorite Slayer songs from the band’s three-decade-plus discography, as well as a few newer songs from the latest release, “Repentless,” which was named Metal Album of the Year by Guitar World. The videos “Repentless” and “You Against You” have racked up a combined 13.7-million YouTube views.

Slayer has won two Grammy Awards, while Anthrax has garnered six nominations.

Slayer and Anthrax stormed through Europe together last fall, amassing a string of sensational live reviews. Both bands are celebrating their 35th anniversaries.

Anthrax“We are very excited to tour again with our fellow kings Slayer on a thrash-metal extravaganza,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante. “Now, that’s a night of metal … .”

Added Death Angel’s Mark Osegueda: “We are thrilled and honored to be part of this amazing North American touring package. Slayer, Anthrax, Death Angel — it just looks, sounds and feels right. This will be Death Angel’s first-ever tour with Slayer, something we’ve hungered for our entire career. And we will bring that hunger to the stage every night, so get there early because this will be a show not to be missed. Metal is alive, hungry, thriving, and coming for you.”

Tickets are $36.50 and are available at the El Paso County Coliseum Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000 and online.
