Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has had surgery after suffering a break to his neck.
Corey took to his Twitter and Facebook to explain that he broke his neck a while back and didn’t realise. This means Slipknot have been forced to postpone their upcoming tour with Marilyn Manson in the US while he recovers.

Read his full statement from his official Facebook account, too:
Regretfully, I’m sending this to our fans to inform you that we will be postponing the first couple of weeks of our upcoming U.S tour. Unfortunately, I had to undergo an unplanned spinal surgery. I am recovering nicely, and all went well! I need a little recovery time before hitting the stage. We will start the summer tour in Nashville on 6/28 and continue as previously scheduled. An update on the rescheduled dates will be available in the next few days. I hope you all understand and thanks for always having my back!
