Slipknot to tour UK and Ireland in 2015 with Korn
13 Oct 2014
Slipknot have announced their Prepare For Hell arena UK and Ireland tour with special guests Korn.
The masked heavy metal band will make their long-awaited return in January 2015 when they will head to Dublin’s 3Arena on 14 January to kick off their ten-date tour.
Sheffield, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, London, Nottingham and Birmingham are all to be treated to a night of Slipknot and Korn.
Corey Taylor, Slipknot’s frontman, said, "The UK has always been very special for us. In a lot of ways, it's where this insanity began. So, for this tour, we decided to try and hit as many places as we could - not only England, but Scotland and Wales as well.
“Technically Ireland is Europe, but we're going there too. We're coming back for the people who started this for us: that would be YOU. Prepare yourselves... Hell is coming."
Slipknot are due to release 5; The Gray Chapter on 20 October. It is their first new music release in over six years.
