I've never seen sniffer dogs at Soundwave before, though i didn't go last year.

SLAYER didn't play today in Sydney because Tom is in hospital 'overnight'. They haven't said why.

yeah, I just heard from a mate over east (about Tom). Hopefully he comes good. Didnt this happen last time? He didnt sing in Melbourne but when they got here he did (or at least, he tried to). The gig with Megadeth at Challenge I am talking about.

Quote from: fasterlouder.com.au
Slayer singer Tom Araya has been hospitalized in Sydney, forcing the band to cancel their set at Soundwave.

No details about Araya?s injury or illness have been released, but the decision to cancel was made just moments before the band was due to hit the stage at the Sydney Showgrounds.

Just before 6pm, the festival?s promoter AJ Maddah tweeted ?Tom Araya has been taken to hospital. Slayer set looking unlikely today :(? but within five minutes ?unlikely? had been upgraded to a confirmation of the band?s cancellation with Maddah confirming that Araya will be kept in hospital overnight, forcing the cancelation of the band?s set.

Araya?s unexplained illness isn?t the only medical issue for Slayer at the moment ? the metal veterans are touring with Gary Holt from the Californian heavy metal band Exodus standing in for regular Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman who is recovering from surgery on his right arm.

According to Maddah Araya ?will be OK? for Slayer?s next scheduled performance is at Soundwave in Melbourne on Saturday 4th March

The Racket's Andrew Haug was facing the toughest gig of his life: telling several thousand Slayer fans that Tom Araya had fallen ill and their appearance at the Sydney Soundwave Festival had to be cancelled. The audience had been gathering before Stage 4 for most of the previous hour, giving Ill Nino a crowd they ordinarily would not have had. But when the thrash legends failed to front for their slot after almost 10 minutes, and the police moved into the crowd instead of standing well back as they had for the rest of the day, most of us knew something was up. And before Haug had even finished speaking ? he got as far as apologising for being the bearer of bad news ? bottles rained onto the stage. Disgusted and disappointed fans tore their Slayer shirts off and set them alight. A full garbage bin ended up on stage, and the hail of bottles continued for at least a quarter of an hour. Then that was it. Their frustration vented, some of them went home. Others just went to the bar to wait for Rob Zombie or Iron Maiden to come on

Typical Slayer bogans, burning Slayer shirts....... FAN FAIL!!

Maybe they could've appeased the crowd by handing out free train tickets back to Mt Druitt.

I'll bet a few wives in Sydney we're beaten senseless that night.

You can probably partially thank Slayer for getting them worked up. Aren't getting what you want? WWWAAAARRR EEENNNSEEEMBBLLE!!!!!! Haha. As much respect as I have for Slayer they are still a business and they didn't provide a service. They failed a contract with their customers. But these are customers who are paying to be in one the worlds most violent moshpits. They are already worked up. Imagine how worked up they'd be if the gig got cancelled! I'm not really surprised. Just lucky it didn't happen when they played in Perth for the first time. Then there would be some real trouble.

Its still childish and 'bogan'/herd like behaviour that makes metalheads look bad.

However I wish bands would go into better damage control for stuff like this. Getting Andrew Haug out is a bad start  :P

Its a cop out, but if that happened and the band (or some members) come out and say 'sorry its not happening, but we'l stick around and sign autographs/take photos' etc it might quell the rage of the more 'devoted' fans perhaps?

I think Slayer's contractual obligations would be with the event organiser...who ever reads the GCs on their tix  :hmm:

Yeah you'd think by the fanboys in this thread it was a Maiden solo show (I couldn't give two hoots about Maiden, or one even)

Oh and stalking..errr 'meeting' them at the airport is kind of creepy (unless you're 12).
