Slipknot announce Knotfest Roadshow in North America!
The multi-platinum, Grammy-Award-winning metal band Slipknot have announced their live return, unveiling details of their massive Knotfest Roadshow headline tour set to traverse across North America this summer. Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth will join as special guests on all dates.
Slipknot are at once popular and critically recognized, despite their unflinching and uncompromising pursuit of their art. Emerging twenty years ago from Des Moines Iowa, the band’s 1999 eponymous debut album is widely regarded as a modern day classic and was honored by Metal Hammer magazine as the ‘Best Debut of the Last 25 Years.’ The release quickly racked up double RIAA platinum certification in the US, with many of SLIPKNOT’s subsequent releases achieving platinum status around the globe.
Last year they shocked fans around the globe with the release of a brand new track All Out Life. Reaction to the unrelenting track was staggering: the official music video (directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan), trending Top 10 of all videos worldwide on YouTube in it’s first day on the band’s official YouTube channel. In the four months since release, the song has already racked up over 30 million streams worldwide across digital service providers and 30 million YouTube views.
Produced by Live Nation, the 29-city tour will kick off on July 26th in Mountain View, CA at Shoreline Amphitheater and continue through September 8th, where it will conclude with a performance at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX.
Tickets go on sale to the general public tomorrow, March 8th, at 10:00AM local time at www.livenation.com. A limited number of VIP tickets will be also available. Each pair of tickets purchased online for Slipknot’s 2019 tour comes with a digital copy of their upcoming new album, scheduled for release on August 9th.
