Slipknot Set To Fuck, Fuck, Fuck Australia Up This October


It started with a tweet. Back in April former Soundwave head honcho AJ Maddah tweeted a baiting, “Are you maggots ready?” with little more than an #Australia2016 tacked on the end. Despite admitting that he had no involvement in the organising of the tour, the man was on the money: the almighty Slipknot will tour Australia in October.

When the street posters landed, we knew something good would be coming – and soon. Especially with the likes of newly minted touring company UNIFY Presents along with Live Nation urging Aussie maggots to “prepare for hell”.


Slipknot mainman Corey Taylor had also been teasing a “very big announcement” with none other than Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osbourne, which had every man and his dog speculating (see: “hoping”) that the magical Ozzfest/Knotfest hybrid will make it out to Australia and fill the gaping void in our country’s summer festival circuit.

While that may knot be the case right now, Slipknot’s national tour will undoubtedly be huge enough to sate even the most starving of mosh addicts: they’ll be hitting some of the country’s biggest arenas in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne this October. Support acts are still TBA at this point, but expectations for some of the scene’s biggest pit-commanders aren’t likely to be squandered.

This is happening, and it’s going to be fucking nuts. Happy Friday, fam – prepare for hell.
