The trickle of Slipknot news that began with a leaked track a few weeks ago has exploded into a flood, with a second single out, the release date for the new album .5: The Gray Chapter announced, and now tour dates for a monstrous fall outing with Korn are official as well.
The Prepare For Hell tour will hit Denver Coliseum on Tuesday, November 11, in what is sure to be one of the biggest metal shows of the year. Korn was just in town for Mayhem Festival last month, but rolling with Slipknot instantly makes everything faster, louder, and crazier.
.5: The Gray Chapter hits stores on October 21, and fans should be pumped for a record that Corey Taylor claims is a sonic mix between Iowa and Vol 3. That fervor will be on full display when Slipknot takes the stage at Denver Coliseum, perhaps the perfect-sized arena for a show of Slipknot's intensity. Not too big but not too small, the 10,000 capacity venue should barely be able to contain the outpouring of musical rage delivered by the platinum-selling bands.
The show is not yet listed on Ticketmaster.com, but a seating chart for the show can already be found on the venue's Ticketmaster page. Expect the floor to sell out quickly once tickets go on sale, especially as anticipation continues to grow for the band's 5th album.
