Slipknot Announce U.S. Tour Dates

Slipknot have announced summer U.S. headline tour dates. The two-week run kicks off on August 22 in Seattle, WA, and runs through September 5 in Milwaukee, WI.

The summer leg of the All Hope Is Gone World Tour marks Slipknot's first headline shows in America since early May, which featured the band playing to over 30,000 people during their headline slot at this year’s Rock on the Range Festival in Columbus, OH. 2009 is a special year for the band, as it marks the 10th anniversary of their groundbreaking debut album. Slipknot will be punishing crowds with classics from their self-titled first record, and will also be busting out tracks from the rest of their catalog right up to their current album, All Hope Is Gone.
