Slipknot Plots North American ‘Knotfest Roadshow’ Tour, 3 Canadian Dates

It’s been six months since Slipknot last played in Canada, however, it seems they’ll be re-Surfacing in the country yet again this June.

That’s right, on Tuesday, the nine-piece heavy metal act announced its second-ever North American leg of the critically acclaimed Knotfest Roadshow, along with its star-studded lineup.

Joining the Psychosocial headbangers for the 2020 rendition of the festival will be not only A Day to Remember, but Underoath and Code Orange too.

The 17-date trek kicks off in Syracuse, N.Y., on May 30, before concluding four weeks later on June 25 in Woodlands, Texas.

Along the way, Slipknot and co. will play three Canadian shows in three different cities: Quebec City, Montreal and Toronto.

Slipknot was founded in 1995 and has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide. They have been nominated for 10 Grammy awards and won their first in 2006 for their metal anthem Before I Forget. 

They launched their own festival entitled “Knotfest” in 2012 and It has occurred annually ever since. The “Roadshow” version of the tour, however, was officially introduced in 2019.

Though the tour hit Toronto last year with heavy metal giants Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth, 2020 will be the first time ever that Quebec residents will be able to easily access the world-renowned event.
