Well, there is a first for everything, and here is the first retraction posted on this site... In regards to the news story earlier today about Slipknot playing a show 02/20 in LA, you will notice that you can no longer find that story here on the site. The Heavy Metal Masquerade Ball which Slipknot was to host and play on February 20th @ The Palace Theater in Los Angeles has been cancelled. So, don't go trying to find tickets, as there are none to be had. Reason for the cancellation in the words of Corey (#8) is as follows: "Although we'd love to do a show for our California fans, unfortunately we are entirely too consumed with the recording process right now. We will make this right at the earliest possible convenience, but as with all things, we are committed to putting every bit of our energy into making this album the best it can be, because we will settle for nothing less, and our fans deserve that and more. So to all our crazy maggots out there, we apologize. Stay "sic" and stay tuned." We'll keep you up on all studio updates and touring plans as we here them...
