Slipknot has announced a last-minute concert taking place Thursday, April 25, at the Pappy & Harriet’s venue in Pioneertown, California – a popular tourist draw near Joshua Tree.

The show will also mark Slipknot’s first appearance with the group’s new drummer, believed to be former Sepultura sticksman Eloy Casagrande.

Tickets will be available online and at the Pappy & Harriet’s box office starting Tuesday, April 23, at noon PT. For more info, visit Slipknot’s official website. All ticket proceeds will go to Joshua Tree No Kill Shelter and Boys & Girls Club Of The Hi Desert.

Earlier in April, Slipknot placed a cryptic new billboard in Indio, California, teasing an upcoming event. A photo of the billboard, which was erected near the site of this month’s Coachella and last October’s Power Trip festivals, was shared by the band’s fans on Reddit. It contained the Slipknot logo, plus the phrases “ONE NIGHT ONLY” and “LONG MAY YOU DIE”.

Fans who miss out on tickets for this show can also catch Slipknot headlining a number of upcoming festivals, including Sick New World, Welcome to Rockville, Sonic Temple, Rocklahoma, Louder Than Life and Aftershock. In November they’ll launch an international 25th anniversary tour.

Slipknot’s latest album The End, So Far, arrived in August 2022. It marked the band’s the last full-length LP before the departure of both keyboardist Craig Jones, who left the group in June 2023, and Weinberg.

Speaking to NME about what Slipknot has planned for 2024, founding member Shawn “Clown” Crahan said: “I’m ready to move on from what has been and move on to a world that I know needs to be. For instance, normally we’d have about two years on and one and a half years off — we’re not doing that anymore.

“We’re going back to basics,” he added. “I’m ready to kick everybody in the face again. I’m ready to do a 100-person venue again. I’m ready to do a 500-person venue.”
