The multi-platinum, Grammy-Award-winning, masked beast that is Slipknot is set to make a long awaited return to UK arenas in January 2015 with their ‘Prepare For Hell’ tour stopping off in Sheffield at the Motorpoint Arena on Friday January 16.
Slipknot’s front-man Corey Taylor said: “The UK has always been very special for us. 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. Prepare yourselves...Hell is coming.”
The incendiary band’s first new music in over six years, the fiercely anticipated, ‘5; The Gray Chapter’ is set for release on October 20. The band’s lead single from the opus, ‘The Devil In I’ has just been added to the Radio 1 Playlist and Slipknot’s gradual creep on world domination has begun once more.
Slipknot’s ‘Prepare For Hell’ tour tickets go on general sale on Friday October 17 at 9am. Tickets are priced £43.45 when purchased online or the ticket hotline on 0114 256 56 56 or £41.48 when purchased in person from the venue.
