Hot off the tail of releasing full details of their new album “.5: The Gray Chapter”, Slipknot have announced a 2014 North American tour with Korn and King 810 entitled the “Prepare For Hell” tour.
Unquestionably two of the most influential acts of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal movement in the late 1990's and early 2000's, Slipknot and Korn will trek across the US and Canada for six weeks starting in late October. There will be a mix of outdoor venues and basketball sized arenas throughout.
After the annual Knotfest on October 25th and 26th, the duo will fast track to Texas for 4 dates, including Halloween night at Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas. Known for their love of the mid-west, the tour will hit many oft-skipped cities such as Omaha, Little Rock, and Sioux Falls during the early parts of November.
The East Coast swing begins November 30th at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto and hits the Susquehanna Bank Center, Mohegan Sun Arena, and Izod Center before finishing up in Boston on December 7th.
Looking at Korn & Slipknot tickets on the secondary market, the average asking price is $184.50. The most expensive date on the tour is Halloween night in Dallas, averaging $235 on the resale market. The cheapest show on deck is November 22nd at Rupp Arena, with an average asking price of $94. General public on sale is September 5th. Slipknot's new album is scheduled to be released on October 21st.
Korn is no stranger to teaming up with metal heavyweights, having just wrapped up the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival alongside Avenged Sevenfold, Asking Alexandria, and more. Looking at Korn tickets during this stretch, demand is clearly higher for “Prepare For Hell”. The Mayhem Festival averaged $107.09 and that ticket price dropped as low as $50 for the St. Louis date and as high as $150.41 for Boston.
