Masked metal icons, Slipknot, are bringing their Knotfest Roadshow tour to Darien Lake Performing Arts Center this Sunday, August 25. The Grammy winning pioneers have a very heavy supporting lineup that makes for a good contender as the best metal tour this summer.
Joining Slipknot are Danish rockers, Volbeat; French metallers, Gojira (who are absolutely incredible live); and Polish Black Metal giants, Behemoth.
With the very recent release of Slipknot’s new album, We Are Not Your Kind, fans can expect to here quite a bit of new music.
Slipknot is known for an elaborate stage production, and they take things even further with this tour. Corey Taylor previously stated he wanted to create some “Iron Maiden stuff” for this roadshow, which should make fans very excited.
There’s also the question of who exactly is “Tortilla Man.” While no one knows exactly who he is yet, you can expect to see him banging away at the top of the drums.
Lastly, Slipknot will be offering fans a “specially curated” look at the bands history with a mobile museum. The exhibit will feature a plethora of “never-before-seen memorabilia,” including instruments, props and masks. The band shared a peek at the exhibit on Twitter, showing a few of the pieces to be featured at the festival.
