Sick Corey Taylor cancels second festival gig

Corey Taylor has cancelled a second solo festival gig after falling ill during his European tour.

The 50-year-old Slipknot star axed his planned performance at the Nova Rock festival in Austria on Thursday (13.06.24) shortly after calling off his set at the Rock For People festival in the Czech Republic on Wednesday (12.06.24) because he had woken up feeling very sick.

In a post on social media, Corey explained: “To my friends in Austria – due to ongoing sickness, I will be cancelling my performance at Nova Rock festival.

“I am deeply sorry to have to cancel another performance, but my priority remains keeping our band and crew healthy while doing everything I can to rest and heal. I hope to see my Austrian friends again very soon when I can give them the performance they deserve.”

He previously axed the Rock For People and explained at the time: “To my friends and family in the Czech Republic – I am sorry to say that I woke up very sick today and as a result of this I will not be able to perform at Rock For People festival.

“The health and safety of my band and crew is always our first priority on the road and I do not want to cause further issues by trying to perform today.

““I am truly sorry to everyone who was looking forward to this performance at Rock For People and I promise I will return and make it up to you.”

He is due to return to the stage on Sunday (16.06.24) for a performance at Download Festival in the UK. It’s not yet known whether his set will go ahead and he hasn’t confirmed any further details about his health crisis.

Corey is due to wind up his European tour in Paris, France on July 2.
