Best to describe a Slipknot concert as a visual extravaganza! There is no lone star at this event. There a multiple talents traversing the stage. Highlighting an overwhelming sensory experience.
Without a doubt I enjoy watching Mick Thomson work the stage or shall I say command the stage. He's uses his guitar wizardry to entrance the audience. Maybe it's the fact that I met #7 at NAMM a couple years back and as far as I could tell he ruled the room with merely his presence.
Corey Taylor..... well what else can be said about his energetic and awe inspiring performances through the years. He brings his A game every show. And this incarnation of Knotfest is no difference. I must say I enjoyed Stone Sour but a Slipknot event blows Stone Sour off the stage.
And what about all the other characters? Some interesting, some downright creepy, some even disgusting, But they represent the misfit in all of us. To me that's Rock and Roll. The downhearted and mistreated can find solace in their favorite rock star. That connection between stage and fan is impregnable.
My best advice is check out Knotfest. The line up is extreme. The music is phenomenal.
