SLIPKNOT played its first full concert in two and a half years Friday night (June 7) at Rockfest in Hyvinkää, Finland. Fan-filmed video footage of the show can be seen below.
The band's setlist was as follows:
01. People = Shit
03. Get This
06. Before I Forget
07. The Heretic Anthem
09. The Devil In I
14. The Negative One
15. All Out Life
17. Spit It Out
SLIPKNOT's European tour will run through a July 5 appearance at the Resurrection Fest in Spain. It will be followed by the "Knotfest Roadshow" headline tour of North America. VOLBEAT, GOJIRA and BEHEMOTH will join as special guests on all dates. Produced by Live Nation, the 29-city outing will kick off July 26 in Mountain View, California at Shoreline Amphitheater and continue through September 8 where it will conclude with a performance at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas.
Singer Corey Taylor admitted a while back that it takes a few days for the band to really get cooking onstage. "It takes a little bit for us, you know. I mean, because we are very active," he told The Pulse Of Radio. " You know, it usually takes a couple of shows before we dial it in and everything's there, you know. It takes our bodies about a week to acclimatize. But, I mean, by the time we get into it, it's all automatic. So we come together pretty quick — at our age, as well. I mean, you know, we're no spry chickens anymore."
The group's sixth studio album, "We Are Not Your Kind", will arrive on August 9. It has been preceded by the release of a new single, "Unsainted", and the first live performance on this album cycle, a two-song appearance on the May 17 edition of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

- Some 20 years ago my brother introduced me to a band. I had never heard such sonics nor violence from any act before that. It completely blew me away. On this night, 20 years later, witnessing guys my age shredding the stage to pieces, watching that mayhem unfold just few steps away, gave me so much energy beyond words. Passion, dedication, hard work. Love. Hate turned into a tool. Just beautiful. @slipknot @coreytaylor @mshawncrahan @7mick7 @therockfest
