Corey Taylor has cancelled his upcoming solo North American tour due to mental and physical health concerns. We wish Taylor all the best at this time and look forward to whatever Slipknot has up their sleeves for the 25th anniversary of their self-titled album.
"It is with a heavy heart that I announce the cancellation of my upcoming North American tour," wrote Taylor. "For the past several months my mental and physical health have been breaking down, and I reached a place that was unhealthy for my family and I. I know this decision will come as a shock to some and may be regarded as unpopular by others but after taking a hard look at where I am and where I was going, I need to pull myself back and be home with my family for the time being. Those of you who bought tickets and VIP packages for this upcoming run will get a full refund.
"I send my love to the fans, my band, my family & friends, and everyone who's helped me get here thus far. I promise i'm doing everything I can to be as healthy as I can be. Until then, my apologies to everyone we would have seen on the tour and hopefully we'll see you again down the line."
