While selling out a show may sound casual for a band that's been around for over 20 years, selling out a homecoming show is something special. Slipknot have sold out their first home show in Des Moines, Iowa at the Iowa State Fair Aug. 10. They do have an album named after the state, after all.

The show takes place the day after the release of their upcoming sixth studio album, which will make the night even more of a celebration. The Iowa State Fair Grandstand has a 16,000-person capacity - that's a big party.

“This is big for us,” rejoices Shawn Crahan.  “I watched Metallica, from the outside - I didn’t have anyone to take me in. The fair is, and was always, about music - main stage, little stages, even little puppet stages.  But there was livestock, agriculture, games - even the police had a presence there, showing crime scene photos to kids so they’d understand the world a bit better. It was chaos. As a kid, this was our Internet. To have sold this out, this early, is intense.”

The Iowa concert is part of the band's 2019 Knotfest Roadshow with Volbeat, Behemoth and Gojira. See the dates below.
