Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax Perform At The Gibson Amphitheatre

Slayer have been on their farewell tour since 2018, and after announcing its last leg over the summer, the iconic metal band played their last show at The Forum in Los Angeles Saturday (November 30). After finishing their last song of the night ("Angel of Death"), the band took a moment to commemorate the tour and their nearly 40 years playing music together, taking photos with the crowd. Vocalist Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King stayed onstage to thank fans for sticking with them throughout the journey.

“Thank you. Thank you very much. I want to thank you for sharing your time with us,” Araya said. “Time is precious, so I want to thank you for sharing that time with us.”

“I’m gonna miss you guys. But the most important thing is I want to thank you for being a part of my life," he continued. "Goodnight. You guys be safe.”
