Live: Slipknot / Korn / King 810
Venue: 3Arena, Dublin
Ireland’s maggots feast for the first time in a decade
Controversy and rock’n’roll often go hand in hand, whether it’s GG Allin shitting everywhere, Judas Priest allegedly inciting teen suicides or Marilyn Manson sending over-cautious mothers into spasms at the mere sight of his gothy mug.
Of course, one of the most controversial bands to emerge from our world in recent times is a certain nine-headed monster from Iowa. Never ones to stray away from contention, Slipknot were “sort of banned” from playing Ireland for 10 years according to iconic frontman Corey Taylor. But now they’re back and have brought some equally confrontational friends with them.
