Slayer has been left without a support act on the remaining dates of the band's European tour after THE HAUNTED pulled out due to illness.
The Swedish group axed two slots supporting Slayer at shows in Holland on Monday and Tuesday (02-03Aug10), as well as a gig in Switzerland on Thursday (05Aug10).
A statement posted on The Haunted's website reads, "We are sorry to announce that due to an illness that required immediate medical attention, we are forced to cancel our last three performances as support to Slayer.
"We are, of course, very sad for this, and would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."
