I would actually really want to see this show. Even with Slipknot.

I love their older stuff, and I want to see how they'll do.

Kickassdude: Exactly what I was thinking. He's probably gonna come in a week and say "touring? no, I'm not ready. STONE SOUR MAKE SO MUCH MONEYZ! BUY THE ALBUM!! WOOOT! but i'm not ready... *sniff*"
