Slipknot's Corey Taylor Has Surgery For Broken Neck


Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is recovering from "unplanned spinal surgery" after he had broken his neck without realizing it, which has forced the band to postpone the first twelve dates of their summer tour with Marilyn Manson.

The tour was scheduled to kick off on Thursday (June 9th) in Salt Lake City, UT at the USANA Amphitheatre. The trek will be launching on June 28th in Nashville at the Bridgestone Arena.

Taylor broke the news via Facebook with the following post, "Regretfully, I'm sending this to our fans to inform you that we will be postponing the first couple of weeks of our upcoming U.S tour.

"Unfortunately, I had to undergo an unplanned spinal surgery. I am recovering nicely, and all went well! I need a little recovery time before hitting the stage.

"We will start the summer tour in Nashville on 6/28 and continue as previously scheduled. An update on the rescheduled dates will be available in the next few days. I hope you all understand and thanks for always having my back! Thank you, Corey."

He later updated fans with the following tweet, "Basically broke my neck a while back & didn't realize it. Had 2 have disc replaced & work on vertebrae. Those 1st shows rescheduled for Aug."
