Slipknot are set to play their first show together since the death of bassist Paul Gray. The band have been confirmed as one of the headliners for Sonisphere 2011 at Knebworth Park between July 8 – 10 next year. The band released an official statement : “We’re looking forward to spending our summer in Europe. This tour is about us and our fans. It’s about celebrating the life of our brother, Paul and his legacy. The door is neither open nor closed. This tour is about burning down that door. See you [next]summer.” For all of you slipknot fans (maggots) out there who were doubting whether you’d ever be able to see a Slipknot show again, this news is a God-send.
Tickets will go on sale on at 9AM on Friday, December 10 at www.aloud.com.
