A few months ago I shared the Official Trailer for the Slipknot Documentary “Day Of The Gusano” which is the name of their upcoming live album and video release and showcases the bands first ever concert in Mexico. If you didn’t see the trailer, you might want to click HERE to be up to speed. The film is opening up in limited release today for a one night only experience that you can enjoy in select theaters. You’ll need to check your own area listings to see what time and where to enjoy this experience. The poster is below for you to peruse.
Corey Taylor will sign copies of his latest book “America 51”; Wristbands will be distributed beginning 9AM, he will not be signing memorabilia but will personalize the book and do a photo ops. This event will be followed by an appearance at Irving Plaza, but that is a different ticket entirely.
The email with the poster got right to the point with very limited discourse and with that being the case I am just sharing the brightly colored posted that showcases the upcoming Fall tour by the guys in Stone Sour. Check it out below.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I love the two main bands on this go round I don’t see myself getting out to any of the shows based on logistics. It would be great to live the life of just jet-setting around the nation to see shows wouldn’t it but alas…..real life. Anyway, I digress. This is surely going to be a good one and a lot of fun so I wonder what you readers think and if you will be catching any of the appearances. Let me know down in the comments section below.
