    Corey Taylor, frontman for genre-defining rock bands Slipknot and Stone Sour, is embarking on a solo tour this fall. He's one of our most favorite chatterboxes, so we cannot wait to see him in this setting.

    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 featuring 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.
