Slipknot – 3Arena, Dublin – 14th January
A surprise appearance at the number one spot in the Irish charts with new album We Are Not Your Kind proved that these Iowa noiseniks are as popular as ever. Perhaps even more satisfyingly, this bunch of mask-wearing degenerates knocked Ed Sheeran off the top spot to get there. If that wasn’t enough hype to get fans excited for their Dublin date, rumours abound that the band have already accumulated enough material for another album. They have also announced the release of an album of recordings made alongside 2008 album All Hope Is Gone, which according to frontman Corey Taylor, have a very Radiohead vibe.
