In a new interview with Eddie Trunk on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation’, Corey Taylor of Slipknot has revealed that the band has moved all of their 2020 tour dates to 2021, due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. As transcribed by Blabbermouth.net “This whole year was booked, and some stuff that hadn’t necessarily been announced…,” he said during an appearance on yesterday’s (Wednesday, June 3) episode of “We had two shed tours [booked] — we hadn’t even announced the second leg of it, which was gonna be later in the fall. So right now, we’ve basically moved everything until next year. Everything is just basically being picked up and moved — same time next year. Because to us, we’re not canceling — we’re just postponing. Once everything settles down and everybody is able to catch their breath and everything, and everybody feels good, and hopefully, there’s been some progress made as far as a vaccine or whatnot, once the tentative fear goes away, everyone’s gonna be barking to go to shows. And that’s when we’re gonna be ready to go again. So, yeah, we just basically moved everything to next year.” Last month, Slipknot canceled all of its previously announced summer 2020 tour dates, including the Knotfest Roadshow, Knotfest UK and Knotfest At Sea, due to the coronavirus crisis.
