Rock legend Corey Taylor has announced a brand new solo tour of the UK and Europe at the end of the year, including a date at Manchester Academy.

The singer-songwriter best known as the frontman for metal icons Slipknot as well as his long-running on-and-off side-project, Stone Sour, has been making music since the early 1990s and is one of the biggest names in rock music history.

He’s also been touring on his own for many years now and after releasing his debut album CMFT (Corey Motherf***in’ Taylor) in 2020, as well as an album of covers, the 49-year-old is preparing to release his sophomore solo project CMF2, on Friday, September 15 and take it on the road in the winter.

Announcing a limited run of UK shows this week, with his Manchester gig being one of just five gigs here in Britain — aren’t we lucky? — Corey ‘Motherf***in Taylor will be making it a short and sweet one.

Corey Taylor played his first solo Manchester and UK shows in general just last year.
