It might have been 95 degrees all day at the Kentucky Expo Center but Slipknot still proved they could make things hotter. Capping off night one of Louder Than Life, Slipknot returned to Kentucky as part of the Knotfest Roadshow and gave arguably the best performance of the festival.
While Corey sounded great and the guitars were again on fire, it was Clown who definitely was firing on cylinders. He was all over the stage throughout the night and you could tell he was having a good time. It’s great to see this band being happy as they perform and tens of thousands all screamed along to Iowa’s monsters.
My favorite standout moment was when GWAR’s tour manager was in the photo pit not as a photographer, but just to give the finger to Corey and Clown while they performed. The two men of the knot returned the gesture for a good 20 seconds mid-song.
During the festival, news broke that the Metallica tour to Australia and New Zealand with Slipknot was indefinitely postponed due to health issues with James Hetfield. Slipknot will continue on their tour and those dates down under will be made up in the future by both bands.
