Corey Taylor To Embark On Solo Tour, Performs Acoustic Rendition Of Slipknot’s “Spit It Out”

Posted by on October 5, 2011

In support of his new book, Seven Deadly Sins – Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good, Corey Taylor will be touring throughout the U.S. and Canada this Winter. Dubbed An Evening with Corey Taylor, the Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman will be performing an acoustic set and spoken word, and will also partake in a Q&A session with fans in attendance at each stop. The tour kicks off at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, CA.

But what can you actually expect from Taylor’s upcoming tour? Well, Artisan News Service recently taped one of Taylor’s recent in-store appearances and caught him performing an impromptu acoustic rendition of Slipknot’s “Spit It Out.” It was fun to watch Taylor turn the normally aggressive song into a fun sing along. Although, it’s still not the weirdest acoustic cover he’s done, or even the weirdest cover of a Slipknot song. So while there’s certainly going to be serious moments during his upcoming shows, Artist News Service’s video highlights how it’ll surely be a fun night for any fan of Taylor’s.
