It was early in 2018 when Slayer announced that they would be embarking a “One Final World Tour” before bowing out for good—news that shocked their worldwide fans, especially the Filipino fans who had just seen them on full power during their first visit in Manila.
“We’ve been blown away by the response we’ve been getting here in North America,” said Kerry King in a press release, talking about the overwhelming response from the fans during the first leg of their North American tour.
“I just want to take the time out to say thank you to all our fans who have made this first part of this tour phenomenal. You really are loyal and dedicated fans and we appreciate that so much from you,” Tom Araya added. “We still have quite a few places to play, so next year, keep your eyes and ears open so you can catch us live one last and final time. Again, thank you!”
Mounted by Pulp Live World, the Pulp Summer Slam is Southeast Asia’s biggest and longest-running Metal festival that has been drawing a massive crowd of at least 30,000 concert goers each year. Through its epic years, the Slam has created a community that established the Philippines’s burning passion for heavy music.
Now approaching two decades of Metal mayhem, its intensity continuously brings the best of country’s metal scene.
Recently ranking at #229 in worldwide list Festival 250 (coming from #243 in the previous year), Pulp Summer Slam is recognized as an exceptional Metal festival worthy of being considered among the world’s best.
Festival 250 is an annual project from Festival Insights, which is an online B2B publication focused on the international festival industry.
