Corey Taylor Opens Up About ‘Complete and Utter Breakdown’ That Led to Tour Cancelation

Corey Taylor opened up about the “complete and utter breakdown” that led him to cancel his scheduled North American tour in a new video statement to fans.

Following the cancelation, Taylor lined up a handful of Asian concerts this spring, which sparked criticism from fans questioning why the North American trek was nixed.

“I decided to make this video in response to a lot of the feedback that came out after I announced that I would be carrying on with my Southeast Asia run,” Taylor said. “Originally, that was supposed to be mentioned in the statement that I released relating to my mental health lapse.”

The Slipknot singer continued, “I, over the last year, have had a complete and utter breakdown of boundaries, mental health, ego, entitlement, the whole nine yards, culminating in a very, very real, very near relapse that… I kind of don’t recognize myself. So, again, I wanted to address this and just tell people that I needed time to reset, I needed time to start working on my heart and my mind and get straight. The reason I’m keeping the Southeast Asia run, it’s literally four shows, it’s literally a week. I’m gonna see how I do with that and just take it day by day, basically. I’m working on self-care right now, getting the help that I need and surrounding myself with my family.”

He also thanked his fans for their support amid his issues. “It’s a long road and I don’t know what’s at the end of it, but I look forward to it. I have gratitude for it, and I hope you can show me some patience,” Taylor added.

Taylor was set to begin his North American tour in Toronto on Feb. 3 before making his way to the United States through March 3.


However, in a message to fans on January 5, Taylor announced with a “heavy heart” that the North American trek was off.

“For the past several months my mental and physical health have been breaking down, and I reached a place that was unhealthy for my family and me,” he wrote on Instagram. “I know this decision will come as a shock to some and may be regarded as unpopular by others – but after taking a hard look at where I am and where I was going, I need to pull myself back and be home with my family for the time being.”
