Designed as an immersive, unforgettable, ‘dark carnival experience’, the event invites you into Slipknot’s apocalyptic underworld where stunning visuals, fire breathers and nightmarish creatures on stilts set the stage for an intoxicating and memorable weekend of live music.In 2021, Slipknot returned to the road and released "The Chapeltown Rag," the band's first new music in two years, according to a press release.
“Even with everything going on in the world right now, we’re still extremely excited to come back out in the states," says the band's Corey Taylor in a statement. "We pride ourselves in bringing our fans the epicenter of our music and art. Come celebrate with us and try to stay as safe as we will be.”
Tickets for the Cincinnati show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 21.
