Slipknot's Final Tour

It is said that one of Iowa's biggest exports is not corn or hogs, but instead, college students. However, when it comes to the world of metal, Iowa has spawned another worthy product. Slipknot, one of the most innovative and influential artists within the metal genre, first broke out of the Land Between Two Rivers in the late 1990s, selling millions of albums and tickets in the process. Now, they have decided to wind down their collective career and close the door on the nine-headed monster that is their band by embarking on one last tour. Today was the start of that final journey, with their first tour date taking place in Singapore.
