Corey Taylor has officially announced plans for his Forum Or Against ‘Em global live stream – and fans are in for a real treat.

The full production – described as a once in a lifetime event – is coming to The Forum in Los Angeles on October 2 to celebrate the release of his debut solo album CMFT, and it’s going to be more Bruce than Ozzy.

Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, he said: ‘This is meant to be a party. This isn’t like going and seeing [Black] Sabbath or Slayer. This is much more akin to going and seeing Van Halen or Springsteen.

‘So I guess the mentality is really just preparing myself for people to see a side of me that they’ve never seen before maybe? But it’s a side I’m gagging to show them!’

Fans are used to seeing the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman – who recently told us all about his love for wrestling and plans for a WWE crossover – in a number of different environments, but the Forum show promises to be something totally different.

So different, in fact, even Corey himself doesn’t know what to expect.

He laughed: ‘I’m excited to play, but at the same time I’m like, what the hell is this going to be like, you know?’

What we do know is the live stream – ticket details are below – will be the first event at the Forum since March this year.

All the fun will kick off with presenter and journalist Beez hosting a pre-show featuring interviews and behind the scenes treats, before a full arena show featuring pyro and a stacked setlist covering CMFT in full, as well as songs by Slipknot and Stone Sour.

As if that wasn’t enough, there’ll also be some covers and a guest performance from The Cherry Bombs.

‘I’m really stoked! I know the guys in the band are stoked,’ he smiled. ‘Not only to be able to play, but honestly just for us to get together and hang. We’re all great friends.

‘Some of us have been friends almost 20 years! We know when we get together, it is absolutely ridiculous. It is complete dorks just making fun of each other, and just taking the piss!

‘We just have so much fun making music and playing together, that’s what I want to convey. That’s what I want people to see, man.’

*Tickets for this online spectacular are available now from watch.thecoreytaylor.com.
