Review: SLIPKNOT Show Awash In Drunken Fans

Steffany Kurilovitch of The Buffalo News reports: "Marred by a multitude of drunken kids and mediocre opening acts, the SLIPKNOT show Friday [Aug. 27] proved to be yet another in a growing list of Darien Lake busts.

"The recent Warped Tour concert was terribly organized and overpriced. The SLIPKNOT show, due to the widespread drinking, featured more vomit and rowdiness than actual musical entertainment. Sorry, but I didn't come to see the WWF or an English soccer match.

"I am finding that more and more of these supposed 'hardcore' shows are all just hardcore disappointments.

"Not to mention hardcore ripoffs. Most T-shirts went for at least $30. I didn't even pay that much for my ticket. And the music business money-grabbers wonder why people keep downloading pirated music.

"As for the show, GOD FORBID was OK with some pretty good guitar work; HATEBREED was just boring with no stage presence; and SLAYER didn't know when to call it quits. Like the Energizer Bunny, SLAYER just kept going and going. SLIPKNOT was the only act really worth seeing." Read more.
