SLIPKNOT’s CLOWN Misses WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE Performance Due To Torn Bicep Tendon

Slipknot percussionist 'Clown' had to sit out of the band's recent gig in Florida due to an injury.

SLIPKNOT percussionist M. Shawn Crahan (a.k.a. Clown) recently tore his bicep tendon during the band’s November 5 concert at Knotfest Los Angeles. Due to the injury, Clown was forced to miss the band’s performance at the Welcome To Rockville festival this past Thursday night (November 11).

Clown explained his absence from the SLIPKNOT performance in a social media post yesterday, saying: “Ladies and gentlemen, if you look close enough (referring to the video clip attached to the post) you can pinpoint the exact frame where clown completely tore the bicep tendon from the radial tuberosity with proximal retraction, proximal to the coronoid fossa of the humerus.

“With that being said, you may have realized I was not on stage in Florida with my brothers and my culture tonight. For this fact I am saddened.

“I had surgery today in Los Angeles, everything went great and I am recovering peacefully.

“I can’t express how happy and blessed I am to have been able to come back to touring after all that we as a community have been through the last couple years. And I promise we will see you all very soon. Thank you.”

SLIPKNOT just completed their “Knotfest Roadshow” tour, which saw support from KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, FEVER 333 and CODE ORANGE.
