Pledge of Allegiance

The band played 27 shows all over the United States and had support from Rammstein, American Head Charge, Mudvayne and No One. The tour was scheduled to start on September 14 but was postponed for a week due to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, 5 dates were rescheduled and 4 dates were cancelled, the rest of the dates went ahead as originally scheduled.
Originally, No One were to open the tour and American Head Charge was to take their set for the second half of the tour. Due to the terrorist attacks, Mudvayne dropped off the tour leaving an open set on October 2. To fill the gap, American Head Charge came onto the tour early and No One stayed on for the entire tour.
A Pledge of Allegiance CD, reported by Metal Hammer to have been largely recorded at the Rosemont date in October, includes SOAD's 'Chop Suey!', 'Bounce' and 'Toxicity', Slipknot's 'People = Shit', 'The Heretic Anthem' and 'New Abortion', Mudvayne's 'Under My Skin' and 'Pharmaecopia', American Head Charge's 'Seamless' and No One's 'My Release'. However, complained Malcolm Dome, "Mudvayne's two tracks… are taken from their DVD L(ive) D(osage) 50: Live in Peoria. And, for reasons best known to themselves, Rammstein are completely absent. So this is far from being the complete live documentation of the tour many would have hoped and liked to experience on the CD."
The European Iowa Tour was intended to begin around the September 11 attacks, but because of the incident, the tour was postponed to February 2002. In mid-November 2001, the wife of the band's percussionist, Shawn Crahan, underwent surgery for Crohn's disease, which forced Crahan to not participate in Slipknot's live performances. However, the group announced that they plan to go ahead with their upcoming European tour, which had its start date moved ahead to January 2002.
Slipknot arrived in Glasgow, Scotland for a performance on February 14, 2002 to kick off the European Iowa Tour, which was its penultimate leg. On February 16, 2002, Slipknot performed at the London Arena, a show they filmed for their live DVD Disasterpieces, released November 22 of the same year. Despite significant tabloid coverage, the European Iowa Tour was not sold out.
