Slayer’s Manager Says Farewell Tour “Doesn’t Mean The End Of The Band”


Although Slayer are currently out on the final leg of their farewell tour, there’s still plenty of Slayer-related things to come. The band’s longtime manager Rick Sales recently spoke to and said of the legendary thrash outfit’s impending ‘end’:

“The band has always had a lot of integrity, there are a couple things that go on. I totally get that they made a decision to stop touring. That doesn’t mean the end of the band. It’s just the end of touring. I always thought of it as, ‘You go out on top.’ They made that decision. They’re not milking it. From that standpoint, I get it and they made the right choice.”

In a separate interview with Pollstar, Kristen Mulderig, who works at Rick Sales Entertainment Group, gave some more insight as to what fans can expect when the band step away from their active status:

“We’re in legacy mode, which is a lot to do, even though they won’t be making records or on the road. They still have their endorsers, there’s still merch and branding to do — sync licenses and who knows? Maybe coming up with some sort of event that is Slayer-based. This is all stuff we’re thinking about and talking about. Slayer lives on, absolutely.”
