A few weeks back we posted that SLIPKNOT was heading out on a short run with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER . Word has already spread that the first two dates have been cancelled, and we can confirm that the full tour has been scraped due to unannounced Joey Jordinson health issues. Even BLACK DAHLIA doesn't know whats up. Their tour manager, Karim Peter posted the following on his Facebook page:
Well we woke up at 6am and flew 9 hours to the middle of nowhere Kennewick, WA. Got our passes, loaded in, set the gear up and sat down for lunch. Then the asst TM [assistant tour manager] came in and told me "today's show is canceled, tour is canceled, pack up your stuff." No explanation given
Very weird, especially for a band like SLIPKNOT who pretty much never cancel shows. Above you can see a video of Corey Taylor vehemently apologizing to the Seattle crowd for missing the first show. Hopefully, whatever happened, Joey can get better and the band can return to kicking ass in front of their maggots.
