Slipknot’s Comeback Show: Setlist And HD Videos!
Slipknot returned to the stage for the first time since the passing of Paul Gray this past Friday, 17th June, in Athens, Greece. Paul’s number in the band, ’2′, acts as the backdrop for the stage and his mask and boiler-suit are also on display, with the members of the band all wearing masks from different eras of the band.
Speaking to the crowd for the first time in the evening, Taylor said: “As you know, tonight is very emotional show for us but it is not, NOT, a negative day. It is a positive day. A day for celebration. This is our first show — with you. Are you having a good time and will you celebrate with us today?”
Later in the show, he also added: “This is very hard for us but [Gray] would have wanted us to come out with you all and celebrate his life. So will you all help me sing a song for my brother? Can you do that, Athens? Sing so loud so he can hear us because he is here with us tonight. Can you feel it?”
The band’s 14-song set-list ran:
03. Wait And Bleed
04. The Blister Exists
06. Before I Forget
07. Pulse Of The Maggots
10. The Heretic Anthem
12. Spit It Out
13. People = Shit
Former Slipknot guitarist Donnie Steele will be playing bass on this run and, In Athens, performed his parts out of view from the crowd.
