Meanwhile, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
In the middle of a North American tour in support of his solo album ‘CMFT’, Taylor shared the news in a video message for the Astronomicon Facebook page and confirmed that he was too bad for his planned appearance at the pop culture convention in Ann . to have Arbor, Michigan, this weekend.
Earlier this week, Taylor and his band spoiled fans in Springfield, Missouri, with covers of Slipknot and Nine Inch Nails, and performed a one-off expanded set with full KISS makeup. This was followed by his first solo performance of Slipknot’s 1999 track ‘Wait And Bleed’, which took place last week.
Also this week, Slipknot was announced as headlining Riot Fest 2021, replacing Nine Inch Nails after they canceled the rest of their appearances for the year.
