Slipknot Have Announced The UK And European Cities They’ll Be Playing In 2020

Iowa titans Slipknot have confirmed a huge list of UK and European cities that they’ll be performing at next year.

We suspected some 2020 European tour dates from the mighty Slipknot might be on the way – having spotted these cryptic posters at last month’s Download Festival – and now the band have answered our wishes, officially announcing which cities they’ll be performing at next year.

As well as the exciting confirmation that the Iowa titans will be returning to UK and European shores sooner rather than later, Slipknot have also announced a ticket collaboration with their new album We Are Not Your Kind: if you pre-order the record before 11:30pm UK time on August 8 (the day before it is released), you’ll get an exclusive pre-sale code granting early access to UK and European tour tickets. Get on that right here.

Dublin, Ireland
Manchester, United Kingdom
Newcastle, United Kingdom
Glasgow, United Kingdom
Sheffield, United Kingdom
