Slayer's Tom Araya suffering from vertigo.

According to a post on Facebook by Sandra Araya, her husband Tom is suffering from vertigo. Referring to Tom's hospitalization in Australia and the cancellation of a show at the Sydney stop on the Soundwave Festival:

“Tom was suffering from vertigo due to extreme dehydration and lack of rest.”

She also added:

“Our doctor is in the process of getting the results on the test that were ran (major time zone difference and being the weekend has held up those results). Hopefully there will be nothing more to add after the results are returned”.

Vertigo is also known as Vestibular Neurontitis and effects the inner ear, sense balance and causes extreme nausea as the major symptom. Read more about it here.

Slayer, who is already out on the road without Jeff Hanneman due to illness and injury and have Exodus axe man Gary Holt filling in. Hopefully Tom recovers soon and the band doesn't have to cancel any more shows. The band is slated to play the next Soundwave Date this Friday, March 4th in Melbourne.

The Vulgar Display of Blog team wishes Tom a speedy recovery. You can read our earlier coverage of this story here. We are tracking the story closely with more updates to follow as news becomes available.
