Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has played his first-ever gig wearing his brand new mask after contracting for COVID.
Corey Taylor has returned to the stage more than 18 months later and played his first-ever show with his brand new mask during Slipknot‘s September 4 Rocklahoma Festival show that was held in Pryor, Oklahoma.
As some of those Slipknot fans might remember, Corey Taylor had announced this past August that he tested positive for COVID. At the time, Corey stated that he had no worries about his health because he was fully vaccinated: “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.”
Finally, Corey Taylor, who’s been appeared in different masks throughout his Slipknot career, has returned the stage to rock his and his band’s fans. Yesterday (September 4), Slipknot has performed at Rocklahoma Festival. At the show, Taylor was marking his first-ever show after COVID diagnosis and introducing his brand new mask that he had been working on for a long time.
