Singapore Rockfest II’s 2021 edition with Slipknot and Trivium has been postponed, promoter LAMC Productions announced today (January 4).
This is the second postponement for the double bill, which was initially set to take place March 2020 – shortly after another Rockfest event with Whitesnake and Scorpions, which successfully took place before the onset of the coronavirus.
Due to the pandemic, both Slipknot and Trivium postponed their Asian tours, and the Singapore show was pushed back to January 13, 2021.
In today’s announcement, LAMC said it was “currently working with the band’s management on the new date”, and recommended fans hold on to their tickets as they will remain valid for the new date. Details on the refund process will be announced at a later date.
This news comes just about a week after Jakarta’s Hammersonic Festival – which both bands were also due to play – announced it would postpone its 2021 edition to 2022. Slipknot have been confirmed for the new dates on March 26 and 27, 2022.
Slipknot are also scheduled to play the Philippines, with a January 15 date set for Manila’s Amoranto Sports Complex. There’s currently no word as to whether it has been officially postponed or cancelled.
Trivium were also supposed to play shows in Thailand and Japan on their Asia tour.
Both bands were due to tour in support of new albums: for Slipknot, 2019’s ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ and for Trivium, ‘What The Dead Men Say’, released April 2020.
