Slipknot announce first European live shows of 2025

Slipknot has officially announced their first European live shows for 2025, marking a significant return to the continent. The iconic masked band will headline the 2025 editions of the Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park festivals in Germany. These festivals are scheduled to take place from June 6 to June 8, 2025, in Nürburg and Nuremberg, respectively. As of now, no other acts have been revealed for these events.

Tickets for both festivals are already on sale, and fans can secure their spots by purchasing them online. This announcement follows Slipknot’s recent confirmation that their music festival, Knotfest, will return to Australia in 2024. Fans who had tickets for Knotfest 2024 will have exclusive access to the first release of tickets for Knotfest 2025, marking the festival’s third edition in Australia since its debut in 2023.

The news of Slipknot’s headlining slots at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park comes as the band continues to celebrate their 25th anniversary. They recently announced their ‘Here Comes The Pain’ 2024 US tour with Knocked Loose, which will be followed by a series of live dates in Europe and the UK. Tickets for these shows are available for purchase online.

In a recent interview, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan discussed the band’s plans for their upcoming shows and the future. He emphasized that Slipknot has always done things their way, and they are ready to move forward with new ideas. Crahan mentioned that the band is going back to basics and is excited to perform in smaller venues again, although safety concerns may prevent this from happening.

Crahan also hinted at the possibility of playing their debut album in its entirety during their live shows. He expressed a desire to return to the band’s roots and create intimate and memorable experiences for their fans. However, he cautioned that nothing is set in stone until it happens.

Slipknot’s 2024 tour dates include performances at major festivals and venues across the US, UK, and Europe. The tour will kick off in May with appearances at the Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple Festival in the US. In August, the band will perform in various cities across the US, including New York, Toronto, and Boston. The tour will continue in September with shows in Washington, Kentucky, and California, among other locations.

In December, Slipknot will head to Europe, with performances scheduled in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, and the UK. The European leg of the tour will conclude with two shows at The O2 in London on December 20 and 21.

In other news, Crahan was recently absent from the band’s headline show at Sonic Temple Festival due to medical reasons. Despite this, Slipknot remains committed to delivering unforgettable performances for their fans.

As Slipknot prepares for their 2025 European shows, fans can look forward to an exciting year ahead. With new music, live performances, and the return of Knotfest, the band is set to make a significant impact on the global music scene.
