Slipknot presented with First Time award at The O2

Slipknot brought an adrenaline filled performance to The O2 for their first ever show at the arena on Saturday 25 January. The Iowa nine piece are the heaviest metal band to have graced the stage at The O2, supported by Polish extreme metal outfit Behemoth.


Legions of loyal ‘maggots’ attended the sold out date of the We Are Not Your Kind World Tour where the band received a bespoke piece of artwork from the venues team in recognition of their achievement.  


Christian D’Acuna, Programming Director at The O2 said:  “What a way to start the year! We’ve been waiting for Slipknot to perform at The O2 for years and it was well worth the wait. If you’re 555, then I’m 666!”
