Now this is interesting. Slipknot/Stone Sour front Corey Taylor will be embarking on a solo acoustic tour. Now, some that don’t follow Taylor might find this odd, but it really isn’t. Taylor is notorious for whipping out an acoustic guitar and playing stripped down versions of some of his band’s hits, and he’s pretty good at it. Check out the video below and judge for yourself.
During the tour, called “An Evening With Corey Taylor, the singer will perform originals and some choice covers acoustically, as well as read excerpts from his new book, Seven Deadly Sins. Taylor will also take questions from the audience.
“I had so much fun doing this type of show in England that I just HAD to bring it to the States,” said Taylor. “It’s gonna be one-part Henry Rollins, one-part Johnny Cash and probably a little heavy on the Monty Python. It’s everything I love to do: singing, comedy and talkin’ smack. Hopefully, the audience enjoys it as much as I do.”
Armed with an acoustic guitar, a copy of his book, a microphone and his unflinching worldview and lacerating wit, Corey Taylor is coming to your town to spread the gospel as only he can and it will be a night fans won’t soon forget. If you are looking to be fully entertained by one of the most gifted voices of the hard rock scene, this is a night you won’t dare miss.
Taylor’s book, Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good spent four weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list, and five weeks on the Times of London Best Seller list.
