Metal icons Slayer dropped a bombshell on the world Monday when they announced plans for a farewell world tour, after which they'd call it quits after nearly four decades as a band.

Today we've gotten the dates for that star-studded speed metal spectacular — and they include one concert in Florida.

Slayer will perform June 15 at the Orlando Amphitheater at the Central Florida Fairgrounds, alongside Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament. Ticket prices have not yet been announced, but they'll go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Click here for details.

While this is the only show booked right now in Florida, Slayer is calling this "the first leg, North America, of its final world tour," so interpret that however you like. Perhaps there will be a second North American leg that might hit Tampa Bay, or perhaps there will not.

Bottom line, if Slayer is on your bucket list, this might be your last chance to see them.
