Corey Taylor Reveals Dates for Socially-Distanced Solo Tour

Last week, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor revealed that he had plans for a socially-distanced solo tour in the works. Now, Taylor has announced the dates of the tour, which will adhere to all COVID safety guidelines.

“[It will be a] short tour — probably about three weeks,” said Taylor in his initial interview with Arizona radio station 98 KPUD about the tour, as transcribed by Metal Injection. “Some of the places we’ll be doing two nights in one city. It’ll be completely social-distanced, which means there’ll be pods with space around it, and the only people allowed in the pod are the people who came with that group. [There will be] temp checks at the door, and you have to have proof of a negative test within 48 hours [of the show], or you won’t be let in at all.

“So, I’m looking at ways to kind of get the cobs going — not only for myself but for people I care about. My crew needs work; my wife [Alicia Taylor, a professional dancer and a member of Cherry Bombs], her dancers, they wanna get back out there. So this is the test to see if we can start to kind of inch back towards reality with these in place — at least until the vaccine has had a chance to kind of do its thing.”
