On the announcement, Slipknot frontman, Corey Taylor siad: “It feels good to be coming back for an extensive tour of Europe and the UK. No matter how many times we come there, it always feels like we can never get enough, nor play ALL the cities we want to. But one thing’s for certain: the audiences are ALWAYS some of the best in the world.”
As well as taking the top album spot in the UK, SLIPKNOT, who are as much a cultural phenomenon as they are a band, made a resounding global impact, with number one debuts in the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan, Ireland, Belgium and Finland, as well as top three debuts in Germany, France, Norway, Italy, The Netherlands and New Zealand.
