Prepare for hell: masked menaces Slipknot are coming to the Metro Radio Arena on Monday 19th January and they’ve brought some heavyweight support with them. Frontman Corey Taylor says that “the UK has always been very special for us. In a lot of ways, it’s where this insanity began… We’re coming back for the people who started this for us: that would be YOU. Prepare yourselves… Hell is coming.”

The foreboding metallers have gained a staggering reputation over the years and continue to produce award-winning work years down the line. Aside from winning Grammies, their popularity is cemented by a string of multi-platinum selling albums and a swathe of festival headline slots under their belts.

Joining them on the tour is Korn, who are no doubt fondly remembered by anyone who was of a certain age at the turn of the century. Well, there’s some great news: not only are they bringing some of their classic rock anthems to the arena but they’re also currently releasing new material. Expect a landslide of heavy riffage, throat-bleeding growls and pitch-black themes when the pair arrive on Tyneside.

Slipknot will play at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Monday 19th January.
