Slipknot were forced to halt their July 27 show in San Bernardino, Calif. after the mosh pit got way too crazy. Between songs, Corey Taylor demanded fans back up to create more room, adding, “Nobody’s fucking getting hurt on my fucking watch, do you understand me?”
The San Bernardino date was the second gig of the 2019 Knotfest Roadshow, bringing Slipknot, Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth onto one stage. Slipknot fans are some of the craziest and most rabidly dedicated on the planet, so when they began losing control of the pit, Taylor stepped in to bring some order.
According to one fan on Reddit, fans were “starting to get trampled and have seizures.” Corey noticed and got mad “because people wouldn’t stop moving to get EMT in.” “Kids and females were on the ground (hurt or unconscious) while people were still running around over them!" the fan wrote. “If Corey hadn’t stopped the song it could of been worse.”
