Lisa Holt, wife of Slayer guitarist Gary Holt, has stood by the band's choice to come together this fall for a pair of headline festival appearances, breaking their five-year hiatus since concluding the "farewell" tour in 2019. 

The announcement revealed that Holt, along with bassist/singer Tom Araya, guitarist Kerry King, and drummer Paul Bostaph, will take the stage at Chicago's Riot Fest on September 22nd and Louisville's Louder Than Life on September 27th. These performances are being promoted as Slayers's first shows since November 2019.

Lisa Holt shared the following post via her Facebook:
