Slayer Ticket Sales Reportedly Flop, Organizers Giving Away 'F--ktons of Free Tickets'
The rough time metal icons Slayer are going through has seemingly begun to affect the group's concert attendance, as the band's current US tour ticket sales have reportedly plummeted. As Gunshy Assassin reports, the group's recent Connecticut show with Gojira and 4arm sold so poorly that the organizers from Live Nation gave away a great number of tickets just so the venue wouldn't be nearly empty. "It seems the same's true for this weekend's gig in Massachusetts, sources claim," the report further reads. "They've apparently given away dozens of tickets for the Lowell show this Saturday, just so the place wouldn't f--king echo from being so empty." Another source claims that the organizers are "giving away metric f--ktons of free tickets to get bodies in the venue," while the website itself independently confirmed that a number of tickets was handed out for free. Two key explanations for the ticket sale decline were given so far, one being the ongoing band drama following the firing of original drummer Dave Lombardo and passing of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman and the other one focusing on a hefty $80 ticket price. Did you get the chance to attend a Slayer show recently? Was the venue full? Let us know in the comments.
