Iowa product Slipknot have had a memorable last few months on the road, teaming up with Korn and Hatebreed on the “Prepare For Hell” Tour before joining Lamb of God on the “Summer’s Last Stand” run. This fall will see the nu-metal heroes bang heads with Suicidal Tendencies on their final run of the year, which takes place over nine shows in October.
The tour, which also features support from Beartooth, kicks off on October 13 at Bismarck Civic Center in Bismarck, North Dakota. It will make Canadian stops in Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton before returning stateside for its final four dates in Idaho, Oregon and California. The short road stint will officially wrap on October 25 at Slipknot’s very own Knotfest in San Bernardino.
According to TicketIQ, the average secondary market price for Slipknot tickets is $113.48. That is being aided by Knotfest, which serves as the most expensive show of tour at an average price of $189.26 and a $69 get-in. Conversely, Portland Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Oregon will be the most affordable show on October 22, where tickets average $77.15 and get-in price starts at $55.
The fall tour will likely be Slipknot’s final live dates for the foreseeable future as they end their .5: The Gray Chapter touring cycle. The band’s fifth album, it was released in October of 2014 and was an homage to late bassist Paul Gray.
