SLAYER manager: Final tour doesn't mean the end of the band

SLAYER’s manager Rick Sales says the fact that they're about to play their last-ever show “doesn't mean the end of the band.”

The thrash giants are on their final run of live dates across the US and will bring the curtain down with two nights at The Forum in Los Angeles on November 29 and 30.
But in a new interview with MassLive, Sales reports that SLAYER have “always had a lot of integrity” and want to bow out on top of their game – but that doesn’t necessarily mean it's the end.
Sales says: “There are a couple of things that go on. I totally get that they made a decision to stop touring. That doesn't mean the end of the band. It’s just the end of touring
I always thought of it as, ‘You go out on top.’ They made that decision. They're not milking it. From that standpoint, I get it and they made the right choice.”
Last week, SLAYER released their concert film and short movie compilation The Repentless Killogy after it premiered in cinemas around the world at the start of November.
