Former Slipknot Drummer Joey Jordison Drops Off Ministry Tour
Well, I sure hope the only reason you weren’t going to Ministry’s upcoming tour was to see Joey Jordison play drums — because he’s no longer going to be a part of the trek. The PRP reports that drummer Derek Abrams reports that he’ll be doing the gig instead:
“I’m super excited to get back out on the road with Ministry for the 2018 North America tour that kicks off tomorrow in Anaheim. I can’t express enough gratitude to the band and crew to be able to be a part of this family. I look forward to seeing you at a show. If we don’t hit your city this time, there is a chance we will in the fall.”
No one has said yet why Jordison is no longer doing these shows (or, for that matter, why Abrams is taking his place behind the kit instead of Bill Burr). To the best of our knowledge, Fear Factory’s Burton Seabell will still participate. Tour dates are here.
