CONCERT REVIEW: Knotfest Roadshow – Slipknot – Killswitch Engage – Fever 333 – Code Orange Live at DTE Energy Music Theatre

Entering DTE Energy Music Theatre was like walking into a theme park. There is a reason why it was rated first in the world for Pollstar’s 2019 year’s end rankings. Last weekend an army of black shirts with dyed hair walked through the outdoor amphitheater’s large gates. The late afternoon was pregnant with the infancy of Autumn which carried a refreshing crispness in the air. The tingly weather placed the multitude of concert goers in a rambunctious mood. The well-groomed music venue is accompanied with exceptional landscaping and pretty restaurants that set a peaceful tone which would be greatly contradicted with the night of mayhem ahead. Slipknot was in town, and they brought the Knotfest Roadshow with them.

Slipknot – Day Of The Gusano (DVD)

It seems most bizarre to think that a beast as all-conquering of the metal world as Slipknot had yet to take their larger-than-life stage show into Mexico City at any point in their twenty-year existence. Yet, until December 2015, and the .5 – The Grey Chapter’s incarnation of Knotfest, that particular duck had yet to broken. Continue reading

Slipknot, photo by Susanne A. Maathuis conducted an interview with Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor at this year’s Copenhell festival in Copenhagen, Denmark. Excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). You can watch the video at this link or below:

On the immediate future of Slipknot and plans for the next record:

“Well, I mean, we’re gonna finish touring and then we’re gonna take a couple of years off again to, kind of, let everything chill. I’m gonna go do my thing, [and] everybody else’s gonna go, kind of, do their thing. I know Clown‘s [percussion] got movies that he wants to make, which is very cool. He just wrapped his first feature a couple of months ago, which I’m pretty stoked for him about. So everybody is gonna, kind of, do their thing, and then, in a couple of years, we’ll get back together and see what happens again. Kind of what we used to do… Before we lost [SLIPKNOT bassist] Paul [Gray], that’s what we would do: we would go [pursue other projects] for a while and then we would get back together after a couple of years and say, like, ‘All right. What have we got now?’ So I think that’s what we’re gonna do.”

Slipknot’s “Summer’s Last Stand” tour Kicks Off On July 24 In West Palm Beach, Florida, Wrapping Up Six Weeks Later On September 5 In Dallas. Joining Slipknot on The Road Trip Will Be Lamb Of God, Bullet For My Valentine and Motionless In White.
