Knotfest Roadshow

with Slipknot, Cypress Hill, and Ho99o9

Azura Amphitheater

Tuesday, June 7

What to say about this show? It definitely wasn’t the best. Neither of the headlining artists have new music out, so they played all the songs we know and have heard for 20 years.

Cypress Hill did put on a great show despite Senn not being on tour with them, due to a heart condition.

Slipknot was reliable in their performance and setlist. Corey Taylor mentioned his throat being trashed and I could tell. It sounded like Cypress and Slipknot did try to change the music just a touch, either by tempo or adding something different just because it is the standard setlist we have all heard before. Overall, it ended up still being a very solid show but you could definitely tell there was important parts missing.
