After performing 19 songs live the band ended their final show with “Angel of Death.” Founding member Tom Araya extended his gratitude to the audience and Slayer fans everywhere after their final tune, saying “Time is precious so I want to thank you for sharing that time with us. But the most important thing I want to thank you for is for being apart of my life.”
