Slipknot has 9 members on stage, so there is a lot going on visually and sonically.

The production for the Knotfest Roadshow was massive with led walls on stage, in the lighting, and video screens on both sides of the stage. This was the loudest show I have ever been to at Van Andel. It sounded great but my ears are still ringing as I write this.

Singer Corey Taylor said, "We have come a long way since our days at the Orbit Room." This got a massive reaction from the audience, many had attended those earlier shows. Taylor also spoke of Michigan being one of his favorite states to visit and Grand Rapids in particular was a favorite city to perform all throughout their career.
