The first two weeks of Slipknot's forthcoming North American tour with Marilyn Manson and Of Mice & Men have been postponed as a result of vocalist Corey Taylor undergoing "unplanned spinal surgery." Taylor has issued the following:
"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 June 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!"

^^^ this guy sucks at anything Todd Jones related. In other news, they are actually cloning Todd Jones' spine from stem cells to place in Corey's back. Godspeed, you lucky sob.

Looking forward to the book Corey will write about it.

"unexpected spinal surgery" unless doucher was in some sort of accident, I doubt it was a surprise. Those "postponed" dates were probably low presale ticket amounts.
