We truly hate disappointing any of you on any front. However, news has come down that Slipknot's upcoming tour of the US which was slated to start in Fargo, ND on November 21 and wrap up December 21 in their hometown of Des Moines, IA, has been postponed. The dates will be rescheduled in 2002. Earlier this week, the wife of SHAWN (#6) had surgery for Crohn's Disease. Since her recuperation is expected to take six weeks, CLOWN will remain at home in Iowa to care for his wife and three young children. We all collectively apologize to the fans and hope that you will understand this decision. Slipknot still plan to embark on their European tour which starts on January 20 in Helsinki, Finland...and then hit Japan, Australia and Canada before returning to the US for the rescheduled dates, which at the moment are tba.
