Louisville gets screwed as rescheduled “American Carnage” tour dumps stop in city

Oh, some stupid tour manager needs his head stuck in a vice for this.

First, Slayer, Megadeth and Testament “postponed” the “American Carnage” tour because Slayer frontman Tom “my back hurts” Araya had to have back surgery.

I’d already bought tickets to the Feb. 2 show in Louisville, so I didn’t see why poor Tom couldn’t suck it up and play the dates anyway. I mean seriously; wussing out of the so-called biggest tour of the year for back pain is not very metal, Tom.

But they PROMISED to reschedule the tour dates, so I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. Keep your tickets, they said. Like a fool, I did.

Today, the record labels announced the reschedule tour and guess what? THEY COMPLETELY DROPPED LOUISVILLE FROM THE TOUR!

What the hell happened here? I suppose some greedy tour manager decided the bands could make a few more dollars of merch in another city. As for L’ville, too bad, so sad.

What. A. Bunch. Of. Crap.

Anyway, if you still give a damn about this tour, here are rescheduled tour dates. I still really like Megadeth’s new disc, “Endgame” … but for now, I think both of these bands can bite me.

    They need to rename the tour “R.I.P. American Carnage ’cause our tour mgrs are lame!” …………..
