Updated: 13 October 2014
Slipknot make their long-awaited return to the UK and Ireland in 2015 with their Prepare For Hell tour accompanied by special guests Korn.
Dublin, Sheffield, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, London, Cardiff, Nottingham and Birmingham will be treated to Slipknot’s explosive and exciting live show during January 2015.
Known for their spectacular live shows, Prepare For Hell will see Slipknot take things to a whole new level with brand new gruesome masks and production.
The tour will also see Slipknot perform material from their new release, 5: The Gray Chapter. The album is first since the passing of bassist Paul Gray and exit of Joey Jordison.
Not only will Slipknot be bringing their visually striking tour to the UK and Ireland but they will be joined none other than Korn. Tour details and available Slipknot tickets can be found below.
In 1999 Slipknot released their self-titled debut album. It proved to be the start of Slipknot becoming one of the biggest metal bands in the world and one of the most sought after to see live.
In their fifteen years together, Slipknot have managed to maintain the band’s key ingredients while still being able to reinvent and rejuvenate their music. Something that is particularly evident on their fifth release 5: The Gray Chapter.
The album is Slipknot’s first collection of new material since 2008’s All Hope Is Gone. The record is also the first after the passing of one of Slipknot’s founding members, bassist Paul Gray, whose name is referenced in the title.
Slipknot have received a number of accolades throughout the years, most notably for their ingenious and twisted live performances. In 2006 they landed the Best Metal Performance for Before I Forget at the Grammy Awards.
Truly a band to be seen live, with their grisly masks and out-of-control production, find your Slipknot tickets now.
