Slipknot hint at one-off anniversary show
Slipknot leader Corey Taylor hints that band could perform one-off show to celebrate an album anniversary – but he won’t say what one
Corey Taylor has hinted that Slipknot could play a one-off album anniversary show in the future – but he won’t say which record it’ll feature.
When asked by Aggressive Tendencies if the band would consider an anniversary tour, Taylor says: “No. We’re talking about one show. We’re talking about at least doing something – me and Clown are conspiring to do something insane for one of our albums.
“I can’t even say if it’s Iowa or not. We’re threatening to do one and really taking it to the nth degree, because we have seen a lot of bands do the celebratory lap and obviously we want to do it with one of the albums – but it’s got to make sense for us. We’ll see what happens.”
The band are currently on tour with Marilyn Manson, with their next scheduled performance taking place tonight (August 19) at Albuquerque’s Isleta Amphitheater.
Earlier this month, Slipknot decided to play a date in North Carolina despite the state’s controversial ‘bathroom bill.’ Slipknot urged the metal community to help fight against the legislation which is seen as discriminatory against the LGBT community and transgender people in particular.
