Slipknot return to Sheffield fresh from the success of their sixth studio album We Are Not Your Kind which reached the number one spot in the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan, Ireland, Belgium, Finland and the UK.
Kerrang! Magazine said of the album: “20 years since their debut, Slipknot are as bold, fearless and exhilarating as ever,” while the NME stated: “The 'Knot's sixth album is an astonishing record.”
Although the band may have once been a cult happening, Slipknot have turned into a global sensation. They have toured across the world, won a Grammy and sold over 30 million records, amassing a global legion of fans.
