It won't come to the US because nobody here wants to touch something that isn't A) a festival or B) Metallica, and unfortunately, both of those options are all wrapped up in one this summer. I wish I could see this tour, as well, but I can't blame them. Europe's become a little more of a hotbed for heavy metal, especially since nothing but Ozzfest flies over here, and that's in the sh**ter this year, as well. Along with Warped Tour and Lollapaloolaalaala.

This would be sweet as hell to go to...and we all know damn well Slipknot would be the closing band, which makes it easier for us to miss them.

^^^^^
i could easily ask for more, i hope slipknot is the opener but becasue they have not played in so long i think that they are going to be the headliners...it is just a wierd show all together even if it isnt a full flegde tour...and mung i know there are better tours than this easily but it is a decent lineup hopefully something like that comes to the states...

Glad to know I am not the only one who thinks this line up is a tad on the odd side. They should call it "The mis-match metal fest"

It would most likely be Slipknot headlining, with Bodom playing second, Head playing first.

Hold ON! Maybe we can think of this the other way...like, maybe you can think of it like the mallcore kids can get exposed to Machine Head and COB? Nothing like real Metal alongside sh**ty Metal to make converts... :D

I wish this could come stateside. Alongside Nile, Black Sabbath, and Metallica, Slipknot was one of the first metal bands I was ever exposed to and allowed me to get into all the "mallcore", death metal, thrash metal, and classic metal that I listen to so much today.

I may have liked sh**knot for maybe 2 wks but than I guess I sobered up and realized that 2 yr. olds can make better music than those 9 pieces of sh**. They have in no way shaped my music that I listen to today (how would Slipknot introduce me to Sunn O))) or Emperor anyway?)

Eat at KFC and not listening to Slipknot benefits your own good. Slipknot should go back and eat at McDonalds with their butt buddy Ronald McDonald who thinks he's a gangsta rapper.

to kcso, we have to prove the world that these guys suck and should not be on a metal website. Machine Head and COB should be ashamed of being with 9 losers who only play for trash. i'm sick of people accepting these guys when they are exactly like Limp Bizkit? remember those guys?

relax guys. I'm 100% sure it will be COB first, Machine Head 2nd, and then Slipknot. So, there's plenty of time to get the f*** out of the venue before Slipcok hits the stage

COB posers? COB play metal and sh**knot play wannabe numetal so how are they posers? Not to mention you support Slipknot than bag on COB for disrespecting their fans? I've met so many people who've met Slipknot and all they had to say was what a$$holes the guys in sh**knot are and how rude they were to their fans, I can't validate or reject what you say about COB.

fair enuf Slipknot has a large following of poser rejects but that isn't their fault. They make decent music and if u dont like it y do u feel the need to piss off their real fans. Their live shows are insane and thats wat really counts. Also mallcore kids + mosh pits = fun. Dey cry so much. And hell yeh Machinehead and COB are gonna kick ass!!! Haven't got Blooddrunk yet but all the other albums are amazing. And the Blackening- F*ckin genius. Kalis_wrath is right when he says mis-matched but that jst means more variety. These are three of my favourite bands and if they do a proper uk tour it'll make my year. And any hope of a Lamb of God tour?

One more thing. Slipknot are nothin like limp bizkit. completely different sound and most of Slipknot isn't nu-metal. People=sh** for example? I jst dont understand how there are so many haters within metal when we all know that the real problem is MCR.
