Slipknot at Utilita Arena

About

In the wake of their return to the Number 1 slot on the Official UK Albums Chart with much lauded sixth studio album, ‘We Are Not Your Kind’, SLIPKNOT have announced their UK & Irish tour dates for early 2020 returning to Newcastle at Utilita Arena Friday 17th January 2020. BEHEMOTH are special guests on all UK & European shows. 

As well as taking the top album spot in the UK, SLIPKNOT, who are as much a cultural phenomenon as they are a band, made a resounding global impact, with #1 debuts in the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan, Ireland, Belgium and Finland, as well as Top 3 debuts in Germany, France, Norway, Italy, The Netherlands and New Zealand.

Reviews for ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ encompassed a broad media spectrum, reinforcing the  innovation and creative vision of the Iowa band, twenty years into their celebrated existence.  “With their latest studio album, Slipknot have released one of the strongest albums in their career,” remarked Consequence of Sound, with The Independent declaring, “The sheer ambition of We Are Not Your Kind is just as staggering as their seminal record Iowa – the dynamic might be even better.”  The Ringer professed, “Slipknot’s sixth album… furthers the argument that they’re the most important heavy band of their era,” while Kerrang! attested, “20 years since their debut, Slipknot are as bold, fearless and exhilarating as ever.”  Vulture praised the LP for its “maelstrom of serrated riffs, warlike drums, and machine-gun poetry from Taylor,” and The NME put it simply: “The 'Knot's sixth album is an astonishing record.”

‘We Are Not Your Kind’ is highlighted by ‘Solway Firth,’ ‘Birth Of The Cruel,’ and the LP’s lead single ‘Unsainted.’  All three came with an M. Shawn Crahan directed official music video, and each trended worldwide on YouTube (all categories, not just music) with ‘Unsainted’ at #1 worldwide for a full 24 hrs, with the band amassing over 58 million views in just two months. 

SLIPKNOT’s Knotfest Roadshow headline US tour is currently underway featuring special guests Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth on all dates, concluding on 8th September at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX. 

Tickets will go on sale 9.00am Friday 30th August and are available online, from the booking hotline number 0844 493 6666 or from 11.00am in person from the Utilita Arena Box Office. Please note venue facility and booking fees will apply.
