Miembro de Slayer deja la gira de despedida por problemas personales

El guitarrista de Slayer, Gary Holt, reveló a sus seguidores que abandona la gira de despedida de la banda para estar con su padre enfermo y será reemplazado para la última parte del periplo.

"Mi padre está muy cerca del final de su viaje", escribió. "He estado tocando estos últimos shows con el corazón más pesado. Y con ese corazón tan fuerte tengo que anunciar que me voy de la gira europea de Slayer. Debo regresar a casa para ayudar a cuidar a mi padre en sus últimos momentos", dijo el músico.

Phil Demmel, quien recientemente tocó su último concierto con Machine Head, ha sido nombrado como el reemplazo de Holt para el resto de la gira y hará su debut en vivo con la banda el lunes 3 de diciembre en Dinamarca.

Holt se unió a Slayer en 2013 como reemplazo de Jeff Hanneman.

First things first, I want to say thank you to Berlin for the AMAZING show tonight!! BEST CROWD EVER! But what I’ve got to say has been very very hard for me these last ten days or so. My father is very near the end of his journey,I’ve been playing these last several shows with the heaviest of hearts.And with that heavy heart I have to announce I am leaving the Slayer European tour. I must return home to help care for my dad in his final moments. Tonight ended with me in tears while finishing Angel of death. But the crowd brought out the best in me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all. And that having been said, I want EACH AND EVERY Slayer fan to give their biggest screams for Phil Demmel @demmelitionmh !! Bay Area legend!!!
