Slipknot On Cancellations

SLIPKNOT have issued the following press release explaining the reasons behind the cancellation of their US tour with IN FLAMES and 40 BELOW SUMMER:

Here is the statement:

“Regrettably, SLIPKNOT have had to postpone their headlining U.S. tour which was set to kick off November 21 in Fargo, ND and wrap December 21 in their hometown of Des Moines, IA. The dates will be rescheduled in 2002. Earlier this week, the wife of percussionist Shawn (#6) Crahan had surgery at the Mayo Clinic for Crohn's Disease. Since her difficult recuperation is expected to take six weeks, Clown will remain at home in Iowa to care for his wife and three young children. The band apologizes to their fans and hope that they will understand this decision. SLIPKNOT—DJ Sid Wilson, drummer Joey Jordison, bassist Paul Gray, percussionist Chris Fehn, guitarist James Root, sampler Craig Jones, percussionist Crahan, guitarist Mick Thomson and lead singer Corey Taylor (also known as 012345678, respectively)—expect to embark on their European tour January 20 in Helsinki, Finland as planned in connection with the ongoing success of their platinum, critically acclaimed Iowa album (Roadrunner Records). The band will tour Japan, Australia and Canada before returning to the U.S. for the rescheduled dates (TBA).”
