Meanwhile, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has announced he’s tested positive for COVID-19.
Currently in the midst of a North American tour to support his solo album ‘CMFT’, Taylor shared the news in a video message for the Astronomicon Facebook page, confirming he was too unwell to make his scheduled appearance at the pop-culture convention in Ann Arbour, Michigan, this weekend.
Earlier this week, Taylor and his band treated fans in Springfield, Missouri to covers of Slipknot and Nine Inch Nails, performing a once-off extended set dressed in full KISS makeup. It followed his first ever performance of Slipknot’s 1999 track ‘Wait And Bleed’ as a solo artist, which happened last week.
Also this week, Slipknot were announced as a headliner for the 2021 Riot Fest, replacing Nine Inch Nails after they cancelled the remainder of their performances for the year.
