Slipknot have finally confirmed the timetable for their enormous UK and Ireland tour for 2020, and what a tour it will be.
Following on from their groundbreaking success with new album We Are Not Your Kind hitting number one in the UK album charts, as well as number one in America, Ireland, Canada and elsewhere, Corey, Clown and the rest of the nine are delighted to confirm their UK return will come in January 2020. Kicking off across the Irish sea in Dublin on the 14th of January, Slipknot will play nine (funnily enough) arenas across Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. The tour culminates with Slipknot’s biggest ever UK headline show at The O2 Arena in London on January 25th.
What’s more, is that they are bringing Behemoth with them as special guests! Currently destroying crowds in America as part of the Knotfest Roadshow tour, Nergal and friends will continue to accompany Slipknot on their UK and European tour of destruction.
The word directly from Corey Taylor about the tour:
“It feels good to be coming back for an extensive tour of Europe and the UK. No matter how many times we come there, it always feels like we can never get enough, nor play ALL the cities we want to. But one thing’s for certain: the audiences are ALWAYS some of the best in the world.”
