Watch Corey Taylor and his band cover Slipknot and Nine Inch Nails songs in KISS make-up

Corey Taylor and his solo live band treated fans in Springfield, Missouri to covers of Slipknot and Nine Inch Nails during their gig earlier this week – watch footage below.

The Slipknot frontman is currently touring his 2020 debut solo album ‘CMFT’, which was released last October in the US.

Taylor and his live backing band performed the Springfield gig on Monday (August 16) while wearing full KISS make-up, with the band performing an extended set after support act Cherry Bombs (the dance troupe of Taylor’s wife, Alicia Dove) were unable to perform.
