Corey Taylor’s upcoming solo shows will include acoustic performances, book readings, Q&As and more!  General admission tickets and a limited number of VIP Packages are available here: http://www.thecoreytaylor.com/?page=tour (if buying tickets to La Grange Festival Oct 22 featuring Corey Taylor, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Jamey Johnson, enter promo code “coreytaylor” to get tickets at half price!)

The idea for the tour sprang from an intimate set of UK gigs that Taylor recently played to launch his book Seven Deadly Sins, as well as his speaking engagement at Oxford University this summer. Taylor will perform originals and some choice covers acoustically, 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 see 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”, says Taylor. “Its gonna be one part Henry Rollins, one part Johnny Cash and probably a little heavy on the Monty Python. Its everything I love to do; singing, comedy and talkin’ smack. Hopefully the audience enjoys it as much as I do.”

Also, this month sees the launch of ZZ TOP’s First Annual La Grange Fest in Austin, TX. It’s a ZZ Top- hosted music festival set for Saturday, October 22. Joining ZZ Top are Lynyrd Skynyrd and Jamey Johnson.  Just added to the show, for a very special acoustic set, is Corey Taylor. “I really can’t say how excited I am to be sharing the stage with Skynyrd and ZZ Top!” says Taylor.  “Just from a fan’s point of view, I can’t wait to see these bands. I’m trying to figure out what I can bring to the table, but I’ll do my very best. And of course, it’s always good to be back in Texas!!”
