Slayer frontman Tom Araya is apparently on the mend after being admitted to hospital in Australia on Saturday, just before the band were about to perform at the Sydney Soundwave festival.
Tom's wife, Sandra Araya, posted the following message on her Facebook page at around 5:00pm EST today:
"SPOKE WITH TOM =) He's feeling much better! it will be a few days before test results come back... That's all I can say for now! whoo hoo!"

And concerning the reports that Tom is suffering from a "severe ear infection," Sandra wrote;
"Tom does not have a ear infection! Not sure who came up with this, but it is not true... They are waiting on test results... If [the ear-infection explanation] is coming from the promoter, I am sure he is only saying what he was told!"
The crowd reacted badly when it was announced that Slayer would not be performing, as you can see in this video.
