Slipknot announce first European live shows of 2025

Slipknot have announced their European live shows slated to take place next summer.

The masked icons shared that they will be headlining the 2025 editions of the Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park festival. The two German festivals are set to take place in Nürburg and Nuremberg, respectively, between June 6 – 8 2025. No other acts have been announced at the time of writing.

Tickets for the festivals are already available for purchase. Visit here to buy your tickets. The news of their 2025 headlining slots comes after the Iowa natives shared that they will be bringing their music fest – Knotfest – back to Australia next year.

Punters who had tickets to Knotfest 2024 will have exclusive access to the first release of tickets for Knotfest 2025, which is the festival’s third Australian edition, having made its debut Down Under in 2023.

Last month, Slipknot announced their ‘Here Comes The Pain’ 2024 25th anniversary US tour with Knocked Loose. From there, Corey Taylor and co will be heading over to Europe and the UK for a string of live dates. Visit here to purchase US tickets and here for UK/European tickets and check out the full list of live dates below.

Speaking to NME about their plans for their shows and the future, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan said: “In 25 years of writing seven albums, we’ve allowed ourselves to do anything and everything we want. We do what we want, as much as we want, when we want, how we want. I’m ready to move on from what has been, and move onto a world that I know needs to be. For instance, normally we’d have about two years on and one-and-a-half years off — we’re not doing that anymore.

He continued: “We’re going back to basics. I’m ready to kick everybody in the face again! I’m ready to do a 100-person venue again! I’m ready to do a 500-person venue. We want to play in front of 500 people, but there are a lot of factors that will mean it can’t happen. We’re at the point where we’ve got to ensure safety.

“Nobody knows truly what’s happening. If I were a fan, I would [ask] ‘Why wouldn’t the band play the album in its entirety?’ and ‘Why wouldn’t the band play some special events that seem intimate and fun?’ I’d put money on it – I want to come full circle and get back to when the dream was only a dream. I can’t promise you anything until it’s happening though.

“As far as the new album, that’s happening, but that’s another plan. These live dates are coming first and we’re here to have a good time. This band has never been happier, and that takes a lot because we’ve been through a lot — drugs, women, money, fame, ego, isolation. But we are on track.”
