There's a pretty powerful one-two punch coming to audiences across the United States early next year as Stone Sour and Papa Roach will team up for a co-headlining tour. The trek launches Jan. 20 in Bethlehem, Pa., with Stone Sour closing out the shows.
Ozzfest may leave quite an impression on Japan next year. The longtime hard rock and metal festival turned a few heads earlier this year when it was announced that Slipknot and Black Sabbath would headline the two-night destination festival in Japan.

Stone Sour have ran into a setback as the band was forced to cancel the rest of their U.S. tour dates due to drummer Roy Mayorga (second from left) suffering a minor stroke. Fortunately, Mayorga is expected to make a full recovery soon.
