Corey Taylor Cancels Czech Republic Concert After Falling Very Sick

Corey Taylor, the iconic frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, has been forced to cancel his scheduled performance at the Rock For People festival in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic, due to a sudden and severe illness. The 50-year-old rocker took to social media on Wednesday, June 12, to break the unfortunate news to his fans.

In his heartfelt message, Taylor expressed his deep regret, stating, “To my friends and family in the Czech Republic – I am sorry to say that I woke up very sick today and as a result of this I will not be able to perform at Rock For People festival.” He emphasized that the health and safety of his band and crew are always his top priority while on tour, and he did not want to risk further complications by attempting to perform in his current condition.

The news was a significant disappointment for fans who had eagerly anticipated Taylor’s performance. However, he reassured them that he would make it up to them in the future. “I am truly sorry to everyone who was looking forward to this performance at Rock For People and I promise I will return and make it up to you,” Taylor wrote.

The following day, Thursday, June 13, Taylor issued another statement, this time announcing the cancellation of his performance at the Nova Rock Festival in Austria. “To my friends in Austria – Due to ongoing sickness, I will be cancelling my performance at Nova Rock Festival,” he said. “I am deeply sorry to have to cancel another performance, but my priority remains keeping our band and crew healthy while doing everything I can to rest and heal.”

Taylor’s next scheduled show is set for Sunday, June 16, at the Download Festival in the UK. Fans are hopeful that he will recover in time to take the stage and deliver the high-energy performance he is known for.

This isn’t the first time Taylor has had to cancel shows due to health issues. Earlier in 2024, he canceled a North American solo tour citing both physical and mental health reasons. The rock community has rallied around him, sending well-wishes for a speedy recovery.

Taylor’s recent health scare comes on the heels of a busy period for the musician. He released his second solo album, ‘CMF2,’ last December and embarked on a headline UK tour before its release. The album has been well-received by fans and critics alike, showcasing Taylor’s versatility and talent as a solo artist.

The cancellations have undoubtedly been a blow to Taylor and his fans, but the rocker’s commitment to his health and the well-being of his team is commendable. As he focuses on his recovery, fans around the world are sending their support and hoping to see him back on stage soon.

In the meantime, the rock community continues to buzz with activity. From Megadeth’s upcoming performance at the Marshall Health Arena in Huntington to Heart and Cheap Trick’s show at the Charleston Coliseum, there is no shortage of exciting events for rock enthusiasts to look forward to.

As Taylor takes the necessary time to rest and heal, his fans remain loyal and understanding, eagerly awaiting his return to the stage. The rock world is a tight-knit community, and Taylor’s health and well-being are of utmost importance to everyone who admires his work.

The outpouring of support for Taylor is a testament to his impact on the music industry and the deep connection he has with his fans. As he navigates this challenging time, the rock community stands by him, ready to welcome him back with open arms when he is ready to perform again.

For now, all eyes are on the Download Festival, where fans hope to see Taylor make a triumphant return. Until then, the rock world continues to send positive vibes and well-wishes to one of its most beloved figures.
