Corey Taylor Announces One-Off Solo London Show

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR’s inimitable frontman, COREY TAYLOR is set to play a one-off London show next month at London’s KOKO on Sunday 8th May.  The show will take an ‘Evening With…’ format, with Corey playing a solo acoustic set.  There will be no support.

Comments Corey, “Everyone’s been asking me when I was going to come back to the UK and do some acoustic stuff – honestly, it’s not because I didn’t want to!!  So since I’m going to be in London doing some stuff in May, I decided we’d make one happen!!  And I cannot WAIT!!”

SLIPKNOT start a US tour in June with Marilyn Manson and Of Mice & Men in tow, while STONE SOUR have been demo’ing new material for their new studio album, pencilled for 2017.  In other extra curricular activities, Corey is also working on a new book ‘America 51’.  He told Team Rock earlier this year that “…[the title is a] kind of a nod towards Area 51 — basically about how wonderfully fucked and irresponsibly abnormal my country is.  It’s going to deal with everything from politics to social commentary — it’s going to piss off a lot of people in my country, but everyone else will love it.”

Tickets for the show go on general sale at 9am this Friday 22nd April via www.livenation.co.uk.  A limited amount of tickets will be available via pre-sale from 9am Wednesday 20th April.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
