You missed some of the Slayer tours right around GHUA, when they brought out this band called "Endo" and another called "American Head Charge" that were almost booed off the stage in Boston.
Since then, their bookings have gotten a lot better. Most tours are "smart" about that stuff. There are bands that like to take chances with who they play with because they think they can win over any crowd, but those bands are few and far between. Most prefer to play it safe and tour with "like" bands.
