Slipknot have announced rescheduled dates for the 12 shows postponed due to Corey Taylor’s spinal surgery.

Frontman Taylor revealed this week that he’d broken his neck without even realising it and had to undergo last minute spinal surgery. As a result, the first 12 gigs on the band’s upcoming tour with Marilyn Manson had to be pushed back.

Those shows have now been rescheduled and can be viewed in the tour list below, highlighted in bold. The Denver, Colorado, gig originally scheduled for June 21 has had to move from the Red Rocks Amphitheatre to the Pepsi Center and will take place on August 7.

Taylor said at the time: “I basically broke my neck a while back and didn’t realise it. I had to have disc replaced and work on vertebrae. Those first shows will be rescheduled for August.”

Slipknot are scheduled to appear at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest in September alongside Black Sabbath.
