Last night, SLIPKNOT kicked off its “Knotfest Roadshow” tour last night at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. It marked the band’s first full-length U.S. concert since the band played at the Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky on October 2, 2016.
Fan filmed-video footage of the show can be seen below.
The setlist was as follows:
01. People = Sh*t
03. Get This
06. Before I Forget
07. The Heretic Anthem
09. The Devil In I
14. All Out Life
16. Spit It Out
SLIPKNOT will release their sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, on August 9 via Roadrunner Records. Album was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT‘s 2004 album “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)” and helmed 2014’s “.5: The Gray Chapter.”
In his lawsuit, Fehn claims to have always been told that the money from merchandise and touring is funneled through one sole company that splits profits and pays the members of the band. However, Fehn claims he recently discovered that his bandmates have set up several other SLIPKNOT-affiliated business entities in different states that appear to be collecting money from the band.
SLIPKNOT have refused to reveal the identity of the new member, who is replacing Fehn, but some fans on Slipknot Reddit had speculated that Zach Hill is the new percussionist, and said they saw him at Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Band has recently unveiled details of their very own craft spirit, No. 9 Iowa Whiskey, which will be available this summer at select retailers in all 50 states and at the band’s headline Knotfest Roadshow North America tour. A collaboration with the Iowa-based Cedar Ridge Distillery, No. 9 Iowa Whiskey (90 proof) and No. 9 Reserve Iowa Whiskey (99 proof) are made with corn from the award-winning distillery’s family farm in Winthrop, Iowa.
