Corey Taylor announces socially distanced U.S. solo tour

Corey Taylor has announced that he’ll be hitting the road in a couple of months’ time for a socially distanced solo tour.

The Slipknot frontman will be joined by Cherry Bombs on the 19-date run, which kicks off in Tempe, AZ in May, and finishes up in Lincoln, NE on June 19. Corey will presumably be airing a whole bunch of material from last year’s CMFT record, also confirming that this tour ​will be socially distanced and follow all state recommended health guidelines”.

It’s been too long,” he says. ​I’m very excited to get back on the road this spring for the CMFTour featuring special guests Cherry Bombs! Pre-sale tickets are available today, March 17 at 10am local, with all remaining tickets on sale to the general public on Friday, March 19.”

Earlier this month when alluding to his solo tour, Corey said of the balance between the return of live music while also keeping attendees safe: ​The only way this happens is if we learn to do it. We have to get on with it. President Biden was talking about the fact that it’s a national emergency that there’s been no school – real school – and a real plan in place, because there was really nobody running the boat for God knows how long, and that’s been a national emergency. And a lot of people feel like that about what they do for a living.

I’m not gonna put what I do as important as education. However, what I do is responsible for a lot of people’s livelihoods. And the faster I can find a way to get us all back doing that in a way that doesn’t endanger people, the better. Instead of just kind of using it as a crutch and waiting for it to go away… Guess what? This may never go away. We need to learn to adapt – we need to adapt and move on and find ways to do this. Like I said, once the vaccine’s had a chance to really kind of do its thing, we will really start to have those tentative steps back towards normalcy as best we can.”
