Tom Araya "feeling much better" after being hospitalized

Slayer had to cancel yesterdays appearance at the "Soundwave Festival" in Sydney, Australia after Tom Araya had been hospitalized. Tom's wife, Sandra Araya, now issued the following statement on her Facebook page:

"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!"

"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!"

According to "Soundwave Festival" promoter AJ Madda Tom "will be OK" for the next "Soundwave" show in Melbourne on Friday, March 4th.
