Slayer frontman hospitalized after first Soundwave Festival gig, cancels tonights show.

Following Slayer's first show of the Soundwave Festival Tom Araya was hospitalized and they have canceled tonight's show at the Sydney venue, the second of six nights of the tour. No details were released as to what caused Araya to be kept overnight. Slayer has canceled several shows the last few years due to illness and surgery on Tom's back. The band is on tour in Australia with Gary Holt filling in for Jeff Hanneman on guitar who is sitting out the tour after illness (flesh eating bacteria on his right arm) and surgery. As more information becomes available we will report it.

Vulgar Display of Blog wishes Tom a speedy recovery.
