SLAYER Guitarist's Food Poisoning Forces Tilburg Cancellation

California thrash metal veterans SLAYER were forced to cancel tonight's (Monday, August 2) concert at 013 in Tilburg, Holland after the band's guitarist, Kerry King, came down with "a horrible bout of food poisoning." SLAYER's publicist told BLABBERMOUTH.NET earlier this afternoon, "[Kerry] couldn't keep anything down and was REALLY sick. He was taken to the hospital and has been getting liquids (he's been able to keep those down), so he is definitely doing better. But he was so sick, there was no way he would have been able to play tonight's show. The doctors say he'll be back on stage tomorrow night [for the second of two shows at 013]."

On August 17, 2010, SLAYER's DVDs — 2003's "War at the Warfield" and 2004's "Still Reigning" — will be reissued, and, for the first time ever, 1995's "Live Intrusion", having been digitally remastered, will also be available on DVD. All three will be sold separately at retail and online ($13.98 each), and the limited-edition "Slayer Live DVD 3-Pak" ($29.98), will be available exclusively on SLAYER's web site,

Every one of the SLAYER live-in-concert DVDs represents a different era of the band: "Live Intrusion" was recorded on March 12, 1995 at the Mesa Amphitheatre in Mesa, Arizona and features guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, bassist/vocalist Tom Araya, and drummer Paul Bostaph; "War at the Warfield" was filmed at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, California on December 7, 2001, and like "Live Intrusion", features drummer Paul Bostaph, marking his last release with SLAYER before original drummer, Dave Lombardo, rejoined the band; Filmed at the Civic Center in Augusta, Maine on July 11, 2004, "Still Reigning" — also gold-certified and voted Best Live DVD by the readers of Revolver magazine — was directed by Dean Karr and recreates SLAYER's thrash/punk, 28-minute classic 1986 album "Reign In Blood" performed in its entirety.
