SLIPKNOT vocalist Corey Taylor recently had to stop the band’s concert mid-song so he could alert paramedics to a fan who had gotten injured in the pit.
The incident took place this past Monday (April 11) in Winnipeg, Manitoba where SLIPKNOT were playing their latest concert on their “Knotfest Roadshow” tour.
In the video below, you can see Taylor addressing the audience during the show at Canada Life Centre, saying: “All right, guys. Make sure they got room, make sure they got room. Everybody back up. Give them room, give ’em room… Here we go. Okay. Hold on. Everybody make room. Everybody back up. Come on. Make some room. They can’t breathe if everybody’s around them.”
When the crowd began applauding, Taylor was quick to caution: “Hold on, guys. No applause yet. I wanna make sure that they’re okay. I wanna make sure that they get out of the pit 100 percent okay. Hold on one second, guys. I appreciate that.”
A few seconds later, he continued: “All right. He’s out, guys. Make some noise for the medics… Let’s make sure they get out. We’ve got a clear path right here. As soon as they’re safe, we’re starting this fucking thing again. Are they good? Okay. Should we just do it from the top? Okay. Do it from the top. You ready?”
SLIPKNOT commenced their 2022 edition of the “Knotfest Roadshow” tour on March 16 at the Fargodome in Fargo, North Dakota. The first leg of the tour features IN THIS MOMENT and WAGE WAR in the support roles, while the second leg will feature special guests CYPRESS HILL and HO99O9.
