The multi-platinum Grammy award-winning beast that is Slipknot returns to Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena next week to begin their Prepare For Hell tour.
With support from Korn and King 810, the tour is at Sheffield next Friday (16th January) and also lands at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena on 26th January.
The tour comes on the back of the band releasing their first new material in six years with the album 5: The Gray Chapter.
And frontman Corey Taylor is looking forward to returning to the UK.
“The UK has always been very special for us,” he said.
“In a lot of ways, it’s where this insanity began.”
“So, for this tour, we decided to try and hit as many places as we could – not only England, but Scotland and Wales as well. “
“Technically, Ireland is Europe, but we’re going there too.”
“We’re coming back for the people who started this for us – that would be you UK.”
“Prepare yourselves – hell is coming.”
