COREY TAYLOR: “AN EVENING WITH COREY TAYLOR” FIRST-EVER SOLO TREK FEATURING LIVE ACOUSTIC SONGS, SPOKEN WORD PERFORMANCES AND AUDIENCE Q&A SESSIONS TO KICK-OFF NOVEMBER 14

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, News with tags , , , , , , on November 10, 2011 by Randy

GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING FRONTMAN FOR SLIPKNOT AND STONE SOUR AND BEST- SELLING AUTHOR
INVITED TO BE THE OFFICIAL GUEST SPEAKER
AT OXFORD UNIVERSITY

2011 has been a landmark year so far for COREY TAYLOR. Known worldwide as the dynamic lead-singer for two multi-platinum rock groups–Slipknot and Stone Sour–the Grammy Award-winner this year added two more impressive credentials to his resume: best-selling author for his SEVEN DEADLY SINS… book as well as Oxford University official guest lecturer.  This fall, COREY will launch his first-ever solo tour “An Evening With Corey Taylor.” It begins November 14 in Anaheim and wraps December 13 in Orlando.
This unique month-long trek will feature COREY playing acoustically, both original songs and some of his favorite covers. The evening will also encompass a spoken word performance with select excerpts from SEVEN DEADLY SINS… and audiences will get a rare chance to interact with the powerful frontman during an open Q&A session. For tickets and VIP packages to “An Evening With Corey Taylor” including a ticket to the show, entry to soundcheck, a pre-show VIP reception with COREY and an autographed hardcover copy of SEVEN DEADLY SINS…, visit: http://thecoreytaylor.com/?page=tour.

COREY recently joined the ranks of the Albert Einstein, the Dalai Lama, Michael Jackson and Kermit the Frog when he was invited to be the official guest speaker at Oxford University. For this in-depth and diverse lecture COREY delved deep into the inspiration behind his music and his new book SEVEN DEADLY SINS: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good–a philosophical exploration into how this Renaissance man’s history and approach to his art, has created worldwide success and a unique vision for living life to the fullest, all told through the prism of the so-called Seven Deadly Sins. SEVEN DEADLY SINS… spent four weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list and five weeks on the Times of London’s bestseller list.  Publisher’s Weekly reviewed SEVEN DEADLY SINS…,

“Starting with the premise that the seven deadly sins should be changed to ‘the seven petty sins,’ since the old ones are outdated and ‘barely PG-13,’ he ends by offering a list he calls ‘the New Seven Deadly Sins,’ which include murder, child abuse, rape and torture. In between, he barrels through his personal takes on positive aspects of the seven sins, such as his view of greed, ‘where one man’s greed is another man’s ambition’ that ‘could cure cancer…’ Overall, his hope is that people will ‘stop holding themselves back even slightly and start realizing potential they never dreamed existed,’ a hope that survived a harrowing childhood in a small Midwestern town-‘a cornucopia of racism, malicious intent, and ignorant torrents of pain’ that he describes in the book’s most powerful and moving chapter.” (August 2011)

The full Oxford University lecture will premiere in four parts on www.thecoreytaylor.com every Wednesday at 5:00pm ET. Watch COREY TAYLOR live from Oxford University here:

COREY TAYLOR TO EMBARK ON SOLO TOUR :::: SHOWS WILL INCLUDE ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCES, BOOK READINGS, Q&As + MORE

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, News with tags , , , , , on October 11, 2011 by Randy

New York, NY:  Corey Taylor, frontman for genre-defining rock bands Slipknot and Stone Sour, is embarking on a solo tour this fall.

The idea for the tour sprang from an intimate set of UK gigs that Taylor recently played to launch his bestselling book Seven Deadly Sins, as well as his speaking engagement at Oxford University this summer.  Taylor will perform originals and some choice covers acoustically; will read selections from the book; and take questions from the audience.  Billed as “An Evening With Corey Taylor,” these shows will be a rare opportunity for many fans to interact with Taylor in this intimate a setting, and vice versa.

“I had so much fun doing this type of show in England that I just HAD to bring it to the States,” said Taylor. “It’s gonna be one-part Henry Rollins, one-part Johnny Cash and probably a little heavy on the Monty Python. It’s everything I love to do: singing, comedy and talkin’ smack. Hopefully, the audience enjoys it as much as I do.”

Armed with an acoustic guitar, a copy of his book, a microphone and his unflinching worldview and lacerating wit, Corey Taylor is coming to your town to spread the gospel as only he can and it will be a night fans won’t soon forget. If you are looking to be fully entertained by one of the most gifted voices of the hard rock scene, this is a night you won’t dare miss.

Taylor’s book, Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good, is an outrageous manifesto on the nature of sin, offered in Taylor’s unique and informed voice. The tome is now available in audio form, read by Taylor himself, and it features an action-packed ending not included in the print version.  Seven Deadly Sins spent four weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list, and five weeks on the Times of London Best Seller list.

Corey Taylor solo dates are as follows:

10/22 Bee Cave, TX (Austin) La Grange Festival
