Slayer Flashback II, South of Heaven Chicago 1988

Slayer week continues, huh? When I spoke to Kerry King last week I asked him about the time Trouble opened for Slayer on the 'South of Heaven' tour in 1988 at the Aragon Ballroom [Danzig was also on the bill]. Kerry immortalizes the night when he tells the story to Rick Ernst's documentary 'Get Thrashed.'

I knew the show date was in August, I also remember it was the first Friday night of my senior year of high school. So  todayI was going through some stuff and found some ticket stubs.

Fucking weird.

The Trouble story comes in at 4:07

On and on South of Heaven...
