Slipknot Announces U.S. Tour Dates With Marilyn Manson, Of Mice & Men
Also, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is getting his own Beats 1 radio show.
Earlier this month, Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin announced a summer 2016 co-headlining tour, and now metal and hard rock fans have another well-packaged trek to look forward to.
On Feb. 16, Slipknot announced plans for a U.S. tour this summer with Marilyn Manson and Of Mice & Men. On Monday (Feb. 29), the majority of the tour's itinerary was revealed. The trek will begin June 9 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and wrap in Des Moines, Iowa, on Aug. 5.
A pre-sale for Slipknot fan club members will begin March 1 at noon local time. Following Citibank pre-sales on March 2 and local Live Nation and radio pre-sales on March 3, tickets will be available to the general public on March 4 at 10 a.m. local time.
Slipknot is still touring in support of its 2014 album, .5: The Gray Chapter. So far, it has produced five songs that have reached Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart: “Killpop,” “The Devil In I,” “Custer,” “The Negative One" and most recent entry “Goodbye.”
But the tour isn't the only bit of Slipknot-related news coming out Monday: It has also been revealed that frontman Corey Taylor will be hosting his own Beats 1 radio show for Apple Music. It's called A Series of Bleeps With Corey Taylor and will premiere March 2 at 10 p.m. ET, with an encore the following day at noon.
Below, check out the music video for Slipknot's 2014 song “Killpop.”
Manson is touring in support of last year’s album The Pale Emperor.
Of Mice & Men, a metalcore band with Rise Records, has three albums to its name (all with Rise), most recently 2014’s Restoring Force.
