After a massively successful co-headlining tour with Lamb of God last summer, Slipknot is ready to hit the road once more this year. On Tuesday (Feb. 16), the metal band announced plans to hit the touring circuit again this summer. The headlining gig will be shared with Marilyn Manson who also had a massively successful tour in early 2015 with The Smashing Pumpkins. Hitting the road alongside the two acts will be Of Mice & Men.
As of now, the official tour dates, venues, and when tickets will go on sale has not been revealed. That information will reportedly come at a later date, similar to what Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin are currently doing. But even without official dates or venues, the towns which the shows will visit have been announced. The list of tour stops can be seen below as well as the official tour poster.
SLIPKNOT/ MARILYN MANSON/ OF MICE & MEN TOUR STOPS:
Salt Lake City, UT
San Francisco, CA
Los Angeles, CA
San Diego, CA
Las Vegas, NV
West Palm Beach, FL
Saratoga Springs, NY
Virginia Beach, VA

The upcoming summer tour will be in support of Slipknot’s recently released album, .5: The Gray Chapter. As for Manson, he released his most recent album, Born Villain back in 2012. While Slipknot and Manson both had very successful touring seasons last year, the same cannot be said about Of Mice & Men.
Last summer, while finishing up their “Restoring Force Tour,” the band was forced to cancel the remaining dates when frontman Austin Carlile was hospitalized. Since his hospitalization in June, the singer has been very vigilant in updating fans about his condition with the band even confirming in August that they will be making a triumphant return in 2016. So far, things look good for Carlile and the rest of Of Mice & Men, except for that little electrocution incident last September.
