As taken from the Metal Blade Records News Update, April 5th, 2011:

Cannibal Corpse guitarist Pat O’Brien will fill in for Exodus’ Gary Holt when Holt leaves the Slayer European tour to play with his own band Exodus at the Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile on April 4. Holt has been filling in for Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman since the tour kicked off February 26 in Australia.

Holt’s last show with Slayer will be April 4 in Padova, Italy; O’Brien will join the band for the April 6 show in Croatia, and will finish the European dates with Slayer that wrap up on April 14 in Holland.

Hanneman has amazed his doctors with his speedy recovery from an infection thought to have been caused by a spider bite. Following surgery on his right arm, he continues his physical therapy and has already been practicing with his guitar.

Remaining dates for Slayer’s European tour are as follows:

APRIL 2011:

06 – Zagreb Arena, Zagreb, Crotia (Pat O’Brien, guest guitarist)

07 – Gasometer, Vienna, Austria (Pat O’Brien, guest guitarist)

  1. I had head a lot of speculation about who would fill in for Hanneman. Sounds like a great choice IMO!

      Isn’t it a cool choice or what!? Pat O’Brien is as solid as they come on guitar… he gives Cannibal Corpse those “thick” grooves that can split a Redwood tree in half! Gee Metal whiz… that sounded kinda corndog. Yet it’s true. 😉
