Concert promoters in Glasgow, Scotland are facing backlash following a list of prohibited accessories at a Slipknot concert that sparked outrage among the Iowa metal band’s fanbase.

Per BBC, some of these contraband items include large chain wallets, large belt buckles, spiked accessories, laser pointers and signs, among other things.

Now, some dress codes are indeed discriminatory by nature, and while this particular instance doesn’t necessary lie tangential to racial matters, fans on social media have still alleged that the restrictions are predicated in stereotypes and preconceptions on metal fans.

The good news is, we’re on the exact opposite quadrant of Scotland and are in a time zone six hours behind theirs, so as for now, each of these just-announced area shows are clear from such strict measures.

We haven’t received a proper, single-billed concert at Cotton Bowl in a minute, never mind one so huge that it warrants a two-night stand.
