Slipknot Send Package to Fan who had Signed Poster stolen in Glasgow

Sophie Ryan, 12, was left heartbroken after a signed poster from the American heavy metal act was stolen at a meet and greet with the band when they visited the SSE Hydro last month.

But the Iowa rockers showed their hearts to be as big as their on-stage performances by rushing to send the Mount Florida school girl a care package as soon as Glasgow Now got in touch.

Frontman Corey Taylor said it was the least the band could do, and condemned whoever stole the poster.

The singer said:

“Anyone who would steal a poster or anything from a 12-year-old girl, in my opinion does not understand what Slipknot is about.

A real fan would have bought the poster, got it signed and given it to a 12-year-old girl.

That’s what Slipknot is all about. We’ve sent her a package to make up for what was stolen, and then some.

Our apologies to her. Shame on the person responsible for this.”

Not only was the poster replaced, but Sophie also received a t-shirt, hoodie, hat, phone case and other goodies.

She responed:

“I am just so thrilled, I can’t thank Slipknot enough.

I can’t believe they made the effort when they heard about the theft, it just shows they really care about their fans.

Now that I’ve got the poster, signed by all the band, it is definitely getting framed!”
