Following lots of teasing for the past week, Slipknot have just announced a seriously tiny one-night-only show.

The Iowa titans are set to take over an intimate venue in Pioneertown, California called Pappy + Harriett’s tomorrow night (Thursday, April 25), which apparently has a capacity of just 350 people. Oooooft!

The already-sold-out event costs just $9 to attend, with all ticket proceeds being split between Joshua Tree No Kill Shelter and Boys & Girls Club of the Hi Desert, with the venue also matching Slipknot’s donation up to $5,000, which is pretty awesome.

Of course, this will also be the first time select fans will get to see Slipknot’s new drummer – following the departure of Jay Weinberg in last year – ahead of the musician’s much bigger introduction at Sick New World in Las Vegas this coming Saturday night.

You can also catch Slipknot at the following European and UK dates later this year:


5 Amsterdam, Netherlands – Ziggo Dome
6 Dortmund, Germany – Westfalenhalle
8 Stuttgart, Germany – Schleyerhalle
9 Leipzig, Germany – Quarterback Immobilien Arena
