Slipknot have cancelled all of thier forthcoming European dates including this weekend’s appearance at Reading and Leeds Festivals because drummer Joey Jordison has broken his ankle.
This is after DJ Sid Wilson broke his heels earlier this year. Hopefully they’ll return in December fully intact but this is what the band has to say:
“To Our Fans: It is with huge regret and disappointment that we have been forced to cancel our imminent European festival appearances at Leeds, Reading, 2 Days a Week, Area 4, as well as exclusive performances for MTV Europe and Virgin TV.
The other night, Joey Jordison broke his ankle and doctors have advised Joey to stay off his leg for 4-6 weeks to prevent further injury or permanent and more serious damage.
We know you will be hugely disappointed and so are we. Cancelling shows is never an easy decision and we apologize to all our fans, friends and family for not being there to throw down with you.
We will be back in Europe this November and can’t wait to see you all then.
