Concert Gallery: Slipknot Brought the Noise in Cleveland at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse
By Scene Staff
On Monday April 4th 2022, The Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse hosted Knotfest. Featuring Slipknot and In This Moment with Wage War as the opening acts. Slipknot is currently on leg one of their roadshow that runs until April 17th. Leg two of their 2022 USA Roadshow picks up on May 18th with Cypress Hill as the opener.
Slipknot played many of their hits including Wait and Bleed, Psychosocial, Duality and Spit it out. Throughout the show Slipknot used pyrotechnics, flame throwers and use of special effect lighting that was blinding at times. The crowd in the front rows could feel the heat radiating from the flames bursting in the air. Crowd surfing and mosh pits were expected but their Cleveland fans brought more energy and raw emotion to the floor than other cities have. Security was on point and ready to respond to any issues that arose and escorted any crowd surfers back to the floor section very quickly.
To keep their look fresh, Slipknot has new masks this year. Their image is always changing slightly to stay aligned with their new music. They are expected to release their seventh album sometime this year.
