Slipknot have postponed their planned Asian touring as well as their ‘Knotfest Japan‘ festival over ongoing concerns with the Coronavirus. The band took to social media to address the matter, offering the the below statement:

“In light of global health concerns, Slipknot have decided to postpone their upcoming Asian tour, including Knotfest Japan. While decisions like this are not easy, the safety and well-being of the band’s fans always comes first. Furthermore in this case, the bands and artists, crew and local employees are also equally effected, and as such, this was the only responsible decision that could be made. Slipknot and Knotfest will both return to Asia very soon, and at such time that everyone can be ensured of the best possible experience possible.”
