I would agree with that if this were 15 years ago but not now. Anthrax was coming off a long lay off when they signed on for the tour so opening up for one of the most popular metal bands today wasn't a bad idea in terms of re-establishing themselves and trying to appeal to a younger audience. You can't take 6 years off and get a new singer and expect the fans to still be there. Especially with a band like Anthrax who's popularity has plumited since the mid 90's. I'm sure Slipknot was just trying to help out a band that influenced them a lot.
