MARILYN MANSON and SLAYER last joined forces in the summer of 2007 for a 25-city co-headline North American tour. The two bands each played full sets, with BLEEDING THROUGH opening all shows.

In an August 2007 interview with The Dallas Morning News, SLAYER guitarist Kerry King stated about the then-in-progress tour with MANSON, "I haven't seen any fistfights or anything yet. But there's a lot of gray area between our fans and Marilyn's. We both mine the same depths. But you can always pick out his fans — they're the freaky-dressed ones — and you can always tell who our fans are; they're the simply dressed ones."

He added, "There was this girl in the middle of the last show that had her fingers in her ears the whole time we were on. I [expletive] loved it!"

Last year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour featured SLIPKNOT and DISTURBED on the main stage alongside DRAGONFORCE and MASTODON. In addition, the tour had two second stages: one sponsored by Jägermeister and featuring AIRBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and 36 CRAZYFISTS. An additional second stage featured MACHINE HEAD, BLACK TIDE, SUICIDE SILENCE, THE RED CHORD, and WALLS OF JERICHO.

Rockstar Energy Mayhem is produced by Warped founder Kevin Lyman, his partner on the Rockstar Taste Of Chaos tour John Reese, CAA's Darryl Eaton, and Jason Garner, Live Nation Chief Executive Officer of North American Music.

Slayer, Behemoth and Cannibal Corpse are a good enough reason for me!

I'll be watching the HELL out of pre-sales. There's NO WAY I'm going to be stuck in a seat for Slayer and Cannibal.

Cannibal is on the second stage... so you wouldn't be stuck in seats anyway :D

I wish I could be on the floor though... but damn... with the way my knees are turning out... I don't know how much more I can do :(

I heard that Killswitch Engage has been added to the Main Stage, it hasn't been "officially" announced since I can only find it on one site... but I would love to see those guys, not a fan of the music, but I hear they put on a great show.

It says up there that Cannibal is playing the "Hot Topic Stage" not the "Main Stage".

PS. You can hear CC's new album streaming on their MySpace page. It's a doosey!

Cool, that's not far from where I'll be living (Milton). If anyone catches info about pre-sales please spread the word. I hate being stuck on the lawn.

Looks like tix go on sale April 24th and if I remember correctly, White River seems to use LiveNation often.

I'll be watching the usual suspects for the pre-sales. :devil:

On a related note, it looks like Cannibal won't be coming to Seattle on their headlining tour, but will be in Vancouver BC on April 10.

Hellooooo Canada!

As much as I'd like to see Cannibal headline their own show I'll have to wait and see what my financial situation is like before I can commit to a Canadian run. We shall see.
