This should be interesting. Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor is performing a show at the gigantic Forum without a crowd (and probably, ironically, without a mask). He’s cleverly dubbed the gig “Forum or Against ‘Em,” and according to the press release it “will be a full arena production complete with a visual feast of pyrotechnics, a stacked set list featuring all tracks from CMFT, select fan-favorite cuts from Taylor’s Slipknot and Stone Sour catalogues, a handful of covers and an incendiary guest performance from rock n’ roll girl-gang dance squad, The Cherry Bombs. Special event merch and bundles will be available during the stream. Kicking off the event’s festivities will be a special pre-show event hosted by presenter/journalist, Beez that will feature exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.”
“I’ve been saying since the beginning I’d find a way to bring this music and this band to the people,” Taylor said. “And I’m honored that The Forum let us do just that. It’s CMFT in its entirety. It’s songs I’ve shared over the years. It’s a celebration, and I’m so stoked to party with all of you.”
Tune in at 2 p.m. PT on Friday, October 2. Tickets available at watch.thecoreytaylor.com.
