Uncompromising, unfiltered, and undeniable in any arena, Corey Taylor continues to impact culture as the frontman for both GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum juggernaut Slipknot and platinum rock force Stone Sour. Taylor is a New York Times Best-Selling author as well as an actor with a myriad film and television credits. Impacting generations of fans and peers alike, his voice roars across six Slipknot albums which have rallied millions of fans across the globe. With two gold-certified albums and a platinum single, Stone Sour have notched five Top 10 debuts on the “Billboard 200” and garnered Loudwire’s “Rock Album of the Decade” for House of Gold & Bones — Part 1, which also spawned its own Dark Horse Comics graphic novel of the same name by Taylor. His debut solo effort, CMFT, made history with the powerful single “Black Eyes Blue” reaching #1 at Active Rock Radio making Taylor the first artist in the history of the format to reach #1 with three separate projects, following chart-topping efforts from Slipknot and Stone Sour. Taylor first crashed the New York Times Best Seller List with Seven Deadly Sins in 2011, occupying the chart for four weeks. He followed it up with three popular tomes: A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven , You’re Making Me Hate You , and America 51 . Meanwhile, his filmography encompasses Fear Clinic, Doctor Who, Officer Downe, and Sharknado 4. The rare renaissance man who can give a symposium at Oxford University and headline heavy music festivals around the globe, Taylor forever challenges culture to think, dream, and scream along with him.

Founded in 2012 by former NFL cheerleader Alicia Dove, a CHERRY BOMBS’ show is rock n’ roll cabaret featuring talented dancers, top-notch aerialists, amazing fire artists, and other cirque acts. While similar groups have existed for years, the CHERRY BOMBS set themselves apart as trailblazers by taking this spectacle on the road. Says CHERRY BOMBS founder/director Alicia Dove: “We are ever-evolving, trying to think of new, dangerous, and interesting skills and acts.” The ‘Darlings of Rock N’ Roll’ will fly from over 20′ ceilings, set things on fire, and dance to the best of rock and metal music. Don’t be shy! Come into their world and let them show you their version of a rock show.
The CHERRY BOMBS first-ever performance was at the 73rd annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, SD, in the summer of 2014, where they were featured on the fifth season of the hit TruTV reality series Full Throttle Saloon. Performing at the iconic rally, the CHERRY BOMBS shared the stage with Jackyl, Big & Rich, Bret Michaels, and Vince Neil. Since then, the CHERRY BOMBS have opened up for rock acts like Saving Abel, Saliva, Tantric, Bad Company, Puddle of Mudd, Cold Ford, Yelawolf, and more. In May 2016, the CHERRY BOMBS completed their first national tour with Buckcherry and Black Stone Cherry, followed by a tour with Stone Sour and Steel Panther in 2017.
