The first leg will include performances from In This Moment and Jinjer, with the second leg enlisting Cypress Hill and Ho99o9.
After an incredible 2021 that saw Slipknot top several festival bills – Knotfest Iowa, Knotfest LA, Riot Fest and Welcome to Rockville – in addition to the band’s release of their first new single in more than two years with the live Knotfest Los Angeles debut of “The Chapeltown Rag,” the band is resuming their relentless pace with big plans for 2022.
Following a safe, successful execution of the 2021 return of the Knotfest Roadshow which boasted performances from Killswitch Engage, Fever 333, and Code Orange, Slipknot have announced the first two legs of the caravan’s 2022 edition and the support underscores why the band has become so integral to heavy culture.
Heading both legs of the run that will span from mid-March through mid-June, Slipknot will be flanked by In This Moment and Ukrainian groove metal sensation Jinjer through April 17th in Vancouver, BC. Resuming the run for the second stretch on May 18th in Pennsylvania, Slipknot have recruited the legendary Cypress Hill and genre game changers Ho99o9 for a trek that covers the spectrum of aggressive, alternative art.
Sharing his thoughts on the most recent tour announcement, Clown of Slipknot said, “It feels so good to get back out on the road with our Culture. Get ready for a brand new experience. See you soon.”
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor doubled down on that sentiment, “Even with everything going on in the world right now, we’re still extremely excited to come back out in the states, with 2 different, exciting packages. Whether it’s In This Moment and Jinjer, or Cypress and Ho99o9, we pride ourselves in bringing our fans the epicenter of our music and art. Come celebrate with us, and try to stay as safe as we will be.”
Fully embracing the crypto wave with real world utility, Knotfest Roadshow will be a part of Live Nation’s Live Stubs initiative which reimagines the ticket stub as digital, collectible NFTs. Live Nation’s Live Stubs will mirror the unique section, row, and seat of each ticket purchased, encouraging fans to hold onto their ticket stubs by offering incentives, real-world application, and value.
Fans will be able to view, share, gift, trade, and resell their live stubs on Livenation.com. Live Stubs will automatically be included with tickets on select Live Nation shows in North America. These are collector items and will not replace the digital tickets needed to physically enter the show.
