Thrash legends Slayer have posted the re-scheduled dates for their 2010 UK tour.
The band were originally scheduled to tour the UK in November 2009, but were forced to cancel all dates, as well as a US headlining tour with Megadeth and Testament, as a result of frontman Tom Araya's crippling back problems. He was later diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy, and will undergo a surgical procedure to correct it in the near future.

You may not like them, but they are thrash legends, simply because of their popularity.
At least they had the decency to reschedule and had a good reason to cancel in the first place *cough*dragonforce*cough*
idk if you can really gauge popularity as a reason for saying a band is legendary
i mean there are lots of really popular bands that are just terrible
but i see what youre saying in terms of their overall influence
"there are lots of really popular bands that are just terrible"
True, but if you think about it Nickelback are mainstream rock legends. They have gained that status by dominating the INDUSTRY in numerous countries over a period of almost a decade, they are the kings of mainstream rock. If, to you, that means that mainstream rock sucks, I don't care, the point still stands.
