To mark the occasion the band received a bespoke piece of artwork from the venues team in recognition of their achievement.

Christian D’Acuna, Programming Director at The O2 said: “What a way to start the year! We’ve been waiting for Slipknot to perform at The O2 for years and it was well worth the wait. If you’re 555, then I’m 666!”
