The multi-platinum, Grammy-Award-winning, masked beast that is SLIPKNOT is set to play a string of UK arena shows in February 2016.

After their triumphant return headlining this year’s Download Festival at Donington Park, the metal icons return to these shores with their visually arresting, chaotic and spectacular shows.

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor comments: “Any time we get the chance to come over to the UK, it’s awesome. Hopefully the fans have as much fun as we do. We’ll be putting together a great set for them, and as we fill out the bill with bands, we hope the excitement gets even bigger.”

Dates stack up as follows:

Mon 8th Feb – CARDIFF Motorpoint Arena
Tue 9th Feb – LONDON Alexandra Palace
Fri 12th Feb – BIRMINGHAM Genting Arena
Sat 13th Feb – LEEDS First Direct Arena

Tickets are available on pre-sale from 9am on Wednesday 7th October through the Slipknot OT9 fan club; www.slipknot1.com/ot9, with general on sale from 9am on Friday 9th October over at www.livenation.co.uk.
