Slipknot Frontman Corey Taylor Announces Solo UK Tour
Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has announced his very first UK shows with his solo band. The dates kick off at London’s legendary Palladium on 17 October and include a special gig on Friday 21 October at the pre-party of the ‘For The Love Of Horror’ convention at Manchester’s BEC Arena.
Taylor tells us: “It’s been too damn long since I’ve been to My Island. I miss my people. And I’m bringing the party with me. Along with my band the Morning Dudes, and Mrs. Taylor and her Bombs, we are going to make up for almost 3 years absence. See you F*@kers soon!!!!”
Tickets for London, Hull and Swansea go on general sale at 10am this Friday 18th March, with artist & O2 pre-sales and Live Nation pre-sales going live at 10am on Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th, respectively. Tickets for the Manchester event will be available via this link.
Corey will also be a special guest at the ‘For The Love Of Horror Convention’ at BEC Arena across the weekend of 22-23 October.
Alicia Taylor is equally excited to bring the Cherry Bombs’ incendiary live performance to the UK for their very first time, commenting:
“Crossing the pond to reach our fans in the UK has been a dream for many years, and I am ecstatic to finally have the opportunity! We will be bringing all of the daredevil arts we are known for, as well as kickass music, and a good time for all!”
