Slipknot has revealed a series of European tour dates for the summer of 2021, as evidenced by the band’s official website and in a recent announcement by the group on social media. The band will also pass through Mexico and Brazil in December 2021 and Japan in 2022.
But the European walk will be the first time they’ve been back on the road in full force since the coronavirus pandemic disrupted tours around the world. Seven months ago, Slipknot canceled their plans for the summer of 2020 due to the health crisis, saying they would reschedule “when everyone’s safety can be guaranteed.”See the new dates at the end of this post.
“Slipknot’s 2020 summer tour, including the North American Knotfest Roadshow … will not take place,” the group explained in a May statement. “The band hopes to perform again for their fans.”
In July, Slipknot also paused Knotfest at Sea “for the foreseeable future.” And, just last week, Knotfest Japan soared to 2022. However, in November, the band began teasing the South American Knotfest stops in 2021.
Now, it looks like the summer of 2021 will see the full return of the rockers tour.
Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor recently looked ahead to the coming year at Slipknot activities, hinting at more concert dates and even a possible new album.
“The plan right now with Slipknot is to try to a) finish the tour next year, and b) we’re thinking of putting out another album maybe next year,” Taylor said (transcript via Blabbermouth) as a guest on the “Good Company” podcast. “with Scott Bowling.
The masked metal act’s sixth studio work, We Are Not Your Kind, arrived in August 2019.
