10-19-01 antiGUY

Slipknot has decided to postpone their planned tours of Europe, Japan and Australia. The European outing was scheduled to kick off on the second of November. The following is statement issued by the band:  �Because of the international tensions, current conflict, and growing safety problems involving our country, we are postponing, not canceling, postponing our scheduled tours of England, Japan, and Australia. These dates will be made up in 2002 and all original tickets bought will be honored (so hang on to them), but right now, we feel we should stay close to home and within our families reaches in case of any major emergencies. We sincerely apologize for this and WE ARE COMING, but right now is the time to watch out for our loved ones. We encourage you all to do the same. We love you guys, and we�ll see you soon. � Slipknot�

Roadrunner Records reports that some additional US tour dates are likely to be announced soon.
