The shock rockers return to the scene of their first UK gig...

SLIPKNOT are to play a ‘club’ show in LONDON.

The group will play at the London Astoria on May 24, the same venue they played their first ever UK gig back in 1999.

The group’s third album, ‘Vol.3: (The Subliminal Verses)’, is released on the same day.

Tickets for the Astoria show will go on sale via the ‘Download Dog’ desktop download from [url=] at 9am on May 19.

A limited amount of tickets will be available to personal callers at the Astoria box office from 9am on Saturday May 22. Tickets are priced £19.50 and limited to one pair per person.
