Returning to the road in the safest possible socially distanced fashion, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer / songwriter, actor, and New York Times Best-Selling Author, Corey Taylor has announced details of his ‘CMFTour’ upcoming Spring tour.

Support on all dates comes from special guests The Cherry Bombs. For tickets, safety guidelines and more information on the upcoming concerts, please visit www.thecoreytaylor.com.
Taylor decided to launch this tour for a few significant and personal reasons. As always, he endeavors to deliver an unforgettable show for fans, but just as importantly, he recognizes the massive impact that the ongoing global pandemic has had on live music venues and touring crews alike. It upholds his staunch commitment to supporting live music and the industry surrounding it as illustrated last year through his popular eBay guitar auction, which raised $150,000 for COVID-19 relief, and his COVID-19 safe secret L.A. show benefiting Sweet Relief Musicians Fund—a 501(c)(3) non-profit healing musicians and music industry workers in need.
As for the show itself, Taylorand his band will run through anthems from his critically acclaimed solo debut CMFT, choice cuts from his Slipknot and Stone Sour catalogs, and various covers and surprises. Additionally, girl gang dance squad The Cherry Bombs will kick off each night of the tour with a high octane, high flying performance.
2021 has been as busy as ever for Taylor. He recently dropped the music video for his single “Samantha’s Gone” – which iscurrently Top 15 at Active Rock Radio -featuring Tom Sandoval of Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules, actor Dean Cameron [Summer School, Ski School, Straight Outta Compton], Steel Panther, plus actor Greg Grunberg, Ace Von Johnson, Travis Miguel and Jonah Nimoy. Additionally, he recently fronted Ground Control a supergroup also comprised of Taylor Hawkins [Foo Fighters], Dave Navarro [Jane’s Addiction], and Chris Chaney [Jane’s Addiction] performing at The Bowie Celebration: Just for One Day in tribute to the late David Bowie.
