Slayer are on tour now with Lamb of God and Behemoth and hit NYC’s Theatre at Madison Square Garden last night (7/27). Though the late Jeff Hanneman and former drummer Dave Lombardo (who’s busy with Dead Cross) are missed, Slayer still have a live show like no other. They played a few songs off their latest album, 2015’s Repentless, last night, but they mostly stuck to the classics. The crowd was treated to “Angel of Death,” “Postmortem,” “South of Heaven,” “Mandatory Suicide,” “War Ensemble,” and more, including “Raining Blood” of course. Check out the full setlist and some videos below.
Slayer also played The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. They called it their late-night TV debut, though they have performed on television before. Despite still promoting a new album, they took the opportunity to give the late-night crowd their biggest song. Watch them play “Raining Blood” on Fallon below, along with a web-exclusive interview with Fallon.
Wait for the drop @slayerbandofficial
