Corey Taylor Cancels North American Solo Tour, Issues Statement

Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has canceled his upcoming North American solo tour, issuing a statement apologizing to fans, explaining that he must take a reprieve for his health.

Taylor, who last year released his second solo album, CMF2, was due to tour the U.S. and Canada with support from Des Rocs and Jigsaw Youth throughout February and March 2024. In his Friday (Jan. 5) statement, Taylor promises those who already bought tickets will get refunds.

See his complete explanation for the tour cancellation down toward the bottom of this post.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the cancellation of my upcoming North American tour,” Taylor says. “For the past several months my mental and physical health have been breaking down, and I reached a place that was unhealthy for my family and I.”

He continues, “I know this decision will come as a shock to some and may be regarded as unpopular by others, but after taking a hard look at where I am and where I was going, I need to pull myself back and be home with my family.”

Taylor explains, “Those of you who bought tickets and vip packages for this upcoming run will get a full refund.” He also sends his “love to the fans, my band, my family and friends, and everyone who’s helped me get here thus far.”

He adds, “I promise I’m doing everything I can to be as healthy as I can be. Until then, my apologies to everyone we would have seen on the tour and hopefully we’ll see you again down the line.”

Loudwire wishes Taylor and his family all the best. See the canceled Corey Taylor dates below.
