Everyone’s favorite masked metal legend Slipknot is bringing the latest iteration of the “dark carnival experience,” the Knotfest Roadshow, to theaters around the country.
The trip has 38 days and two legs. The match begins in Fargo, ND on March 16 at FARGODOME, and the first leg ends on April 17 in Vancouver, BC, at Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena. That leg features hard rock disciples In This Moment and Jinjer.
Frontman Corey Taylor said he understands this is a strange time to tour, but the band will try and make things safe for everyone.
“Even with things going in the world right now, we’re super excited to be back in the states, with two different, exciting packages,” he said in a press release. “Whether it’s In This Moment and Jinjer, or Cypress and Ho99o9, we pride ourselves on giving our fans the heart of our music and art. Come celebrate with us, and try to stay as safe as possible. “
The second leg of the tour features Cypress Hill and Ho99o9. It begins at University Park, PA, at the Bryce Jordan Center on May 18 and runs through June 18, ending in Chula Vista, California.
Tickets for the festival will go on sale January 21 and can be purchased at festival website. The tour is part of Live Nation’s Live Stubs initiative, which means everyone will receive a “digital collectible NFT ticket,” which can be viewed, shared, given away, and resold.
The festival will invite the masses “into the apocalyptic underworld of Slipknot, where stunning images, fire fountains, and memorable creatures on stilts set the stage for an intoxicating and memorable weekend with live music.”
In other major Slipknot news, it looks like DJ Sid Wilson is dating former reality TV star Kelly Osbourne, daughter of metal godfather Ozzy Osbourne.
Osbourne split from actor Erik Bragg in October, but she’s most likely going to get over that heartbreak because on January 18 she posted cozy photos with Wilson. In one of them, he kissed her on the cheek while she pretended to be surprised.
She never officially announced the breakup, but Bragg said Our weekly that they broke up and that “Kelly rules. That’s it. That’s all.” The couple started dating as soon as the pandemic broke out in March 2020.
