Slayer bassist and singer Tom Araya's health issues forced the cancelation of his band's Sunday appearance as part of the Soundwave festival in Sydney, Australia. But, in a new statement released by festival organizers, Araya said he's back to normal. "Sorry I couldn't make the Sydney festival show," he said. "I am feeling much better and look forward to performing in Melbourne." The Melbourne stop takes place on Friday, March 4. The statement follows an update that Araya's wife, Sandra, posted on Facebook. She said that Tom "was suffering from vertigo due to extreme dehydration and lack of rest. Our doctor is in the process of getting the results on the test that were ran (major time zone difference and being the weekend has held up those results). Hopefully there will be nothing more to add after the results are returned." During their Australian tour, Slayer are already down one original member. Guitarist Jeff Hanneman is sidelined because of a rare disease that destroys skin, fat and tissue. His temporary replacement is Gary Holt, of Exodus. Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek, Gibson.com.
