Heavy metal favourites Slipknot will take their 2016 tour to Belfast, it has been confirmed.

The concert will form the end of their 2016 tour, which is due to start at Cardiff Arena on 8 February and includes two gigs at London’s Alexandra Palace.
Frontman Corey Taylor said of the tour, "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."
