Slipknot return to the UK for short tour in February

Todays big new on the music from is that the multi-platinum, Grammy-Award-winning, masked beast that is SLIPKNOT is set to play a short run of UK arena shows in February 2016.

After Slipknots triumphant return headlining this year’s Download Festival at Donington Park, the metal icons return to these shores with their visually arresting, chaotic and spectacular shows.

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor comments: “Any time we get the chance to come over to the UK, it’s awesome. Hopefully the fans have as much fun as we do.  We’ll be putting together a great set for them, and as we fill out the bill with bands, we hope the excitement gets even bigger.”

The bad news for Slipknot fans is that the run is just four shows and on a personal level the fact that the London show is on a Tuesday evening really sucks.

At present it has not been announced who will support Slipknot for the UK dates.

Fans will be keen to snap up tickets as it is believed that Slipknot will go on a hiatus after next years European dates.

Dates stack up as follows:

MONDAY                     8          CARDIFF ARENA
TUESDAY                    9          LONDON ALEXANDRA PALACE
FRIDAY                       12        BIRMINGHAM GENTING ARENA
SATURDAY                 13        LEEDS FIRST DIRECT ARENA
Tickets are priced at £39.50 (subject to per-ticket charge plus order processing fee)   available on pre-sale from 9am Wednesday 7th October through the Slipknot OT9 Fan Club and go on general sale at 9am Friday 9th October from

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
