The tour was originally postponed as a result of Slayer frontman/bassist Tom Araya suffering from Cervical Radiculopathy. He has since underwent a surgical procedure known as Anterior Cervical Disectomy with Fusion and is well on his way to recovery. Band manager Rick Sales offered the following to that end:

“The doctors said that Tom‘s surgery went very smoothly and was a resounding success. He’s home now, doing really well, and he said the numbness in his fingers had already diminished considerably.”

Furthermore, the official press release for the tour had the following caveat:

“Due to venue availability and other conflicts, the shows originally scheduled in El Paso, Houston, Nashville, Duluth, and Louisville cannot be rescheduled at this time, and ticket holders may obtain refunds at point of purchase. However, new cities have been added to the American Carnage itinerary, with dates now scheduled in Cleveland, Kansas City, San Diego, and Sacramento.”
