Slayer Call Out Scammers Offering Tickets To Fake 2020 Reunion Show
While last year saw many huge bands reuniting or returning to the stage, it also saw one of metal’s greatest acts leaving the spotlight. Thrash metal titans Slayer ended their massive Final Tour last year, closing out their touring career with a massive nice at The Forum in Los Angeles. But now, someone is selling tickets to a festival in Sweden that they’re claiming will feature Slayer’s return to the stage — and the band are calling them out.
Slayer recently tweeted, “There are tickets being offered on Viagogo for a Slayer performance at Sweden Rocks June 2020. Buyer beware this is a resale site with inaccurate information SLAYER WILL NOT PERFORMING.”
WARNING TO SLAYER FANS! There are tickets being offered on Viagogo for a Slayer performance at Sweden Rocks June 2… https://t.co/JAXd1JJwlb— Slayer (@Slayer) Thu Jan 23 17:14:33 +0000 2020

The tickets for Sweden Rock 2020 are still available on Viagogo, and while they don’t explicitly say ‘Slayer’ on the listing, they do show up if you search the word ‘Slayer’ on the site. So, for anyone out there praying that Slayer were taking only a brief hiatus, be warned: you’re being scammed.
We don’t blame metalheads for hoping against hope that Slayer would return. The Slayer live experience is not to be missed — was not to be missed (we’re not crying, shut up) — and the final shows at the Forum included a massive setlist of classics.
Here’s what Slayer played at their last show ever:
- South of Heaven
- World Painted Blood
- Hate Worldwide
- War Ensemble
- Stain of Mind
- When the Stillness Comes(Clean intro was skipped)
- Born of Fire
- Seasons in the Abyss
- Jesus Saves
- Chemical Warfare
- Hell Awaits
- Dead Skin Mask
- Show No Mercy
- Raining Blood
- Mandatory Suicide
- Angel of Death
One fan even caught the band’s closing performance of Angel Of Death, as well as their heartfelt goodbye to the crowd. Watch the footage below:
