Two of the most iconic acts in Rock/Metal music are back! Slipknot with Marilyn Manson, backed by Of Mice And Men, announce a tour set to kick off on June 9th in Utah but had to be postponed due to Slipknot’s front man’s injuries.
Fans jaws dropped on June 3rd after the news broke about Corey Taylor’s injury. There were rumors immediately about the tour being canceled, making a lot of their fans very disappointed. But just a few hours later, Taylor revealed on his Twitter page they were just going to cancel the first dates of their tour and would take the stage on June 28th in Nashville, Tennessee .
Last nights concert was Taylor’s first night back since his surgery on his neck and back. It’s already been reported that the guys from Slipknot played a full set, and Taylor performed with a neck brace the entire show. How courageous is that? Just weeks after his surgery, the singer who got the okay by doctors but was told ‘absolutely no head banging or jumping around on stage’, still managed to go all out.
Tweets have come in regarding last nights performance in Nashville. Here is what some of you had to say..
‘Blown away by the @slipknot show tonight in Nashville.’
‘Caught @slipknot in Nashville on our day off and they were “Sic”. Thanks, I’ll be here all week.’
‘”marilyn manson is in nashville with slipknot” satan is really busy’
Slipknot and Marilyn Manson were both quoted ‘that they were both going to lay it all on the line on this tour’. Which promises the concert to be one of the best of this year. Don’t miss the guys from Slipknot, Marilyn Manson and Of Mice & Men as they tear through a town near you!
