European 'Unholy Alliance Tour' Featuring SLAYER, IN FLAMES: First Tour Date Announced

The first date has been announced for the European edition of the Unholy Alliance Tour, set to take place this fall. According to, SLAYER, IN FLAMES, CHILDREN OF BODOM, LAMB OF GOD and THINE EYES BLEED (as BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported yesterday) will be teaming up for a concert at Eulachhalle in Winterthur, Switzerland on October 23, 2006. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, June 6 at 6:00 a.m.

At this time, there has been no official confirmation on the billing from any of the acts that are said to be involved in the tour.

Nuclear Blast Records had previously announced that their recent signing, the up-and-coming U.K. band MENDEED, will take part in the European version of the Unholy Alliance Tour. However, this has not been officially confirmed by the SLAYER camp.

The SLAYER-headlined North American edition of the Unholy Alliance Tour will kick off June 15 in Camden, New Jersey, and run through July 26 in Denver. Also appearing on the bill are LAMB OF GOD, MASTODON, CHILDREN OF BODOM and THINE EYES BLEED.
