The Bomb Factory is home to some of the best heavy metal concerts to come through the state of Texas. However, on June 19, the music venue will be home to a concert that true metalheads will not want to miss. Slayer is in the middle of their farewell tour and this might be the last time the iconic metal band will ever play in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The thrash metal scene was founded under the guidance of four metal icons -- Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax. Out of those bands, it looks like Slayer is the first to finally end their run. Since forming in 1981, Slayer has released 12 studio albums. They even have a re-release of Repentless coming out on June 6, a day fans know as International Day of Slayer.
However, the Grammy-winning metal band only has two original members left in singer Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King. Since guitarist Jeff Hanneman died in 2013 and drummer Dave Lombardo left the same year, Slayer has considered calling it quits.
Tickets to the Slayer concert in Dallas are available now through AXS (buy tickets here). Due to the retirement announcement and demand, prices start at $56.75 and go all the way up to $155 for the show. Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament all serve as the opening bands.
