SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor has confirmed that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
Taylor was supposed to perform this weekend at the Astronomicon convention in Ann Arbor, Michigan, however had to drop out after issuing a video update through the event’s Facebook page, revealing his diagnosis while expressing regret that he would be unable to play the event.
“Hello, Astronomicon, Corey here. I hope everybody is well. I wish I had better news. I woke up today and tested positive, and I’m very, very sick. So I’m not gonna be able to make it this weekend, and I am absolutely devastated. I am so sorry,” he said.
“I hope everyone has a good time, and I promise you I will absolutely try to get back there as soon as I can. I should be okay — it’s the flu. I’m vaccinated, so I’m not worried. But I certainly wouldn’t want to spread it to anyone else. So, everybody be safe out there. And thank you so much. And I will see you again, I promise.”
