Watch: Corey Taylor Stops SLIPKNOT Show When The Mosh Pit Gets Out of Control
Slipknot shows can get pretty intense. The music is heavy and fast, the lights, the adrenaline – it can get the best of us. Sometimes, accidents happen. The point of the mosh pit is to have fun, not to get hurt or hurt anybody. At Slipknot’s show in San Bernardino, CA this past Saturday, July 27, the pit got out of control, and the pit master himself, Corey Taylor, put a stop to it.
Fans posting on Reddit noted that a woman in the pit had a seizure and became trapped in there. Some other Redditors commented on the thread that “During the huge push on the first song a dude went down near me and was passed out face down on the ground… I’m pretty beefy and luckily there was another huge dude right there too but it still took both of us giving it our absolute everything, for probably a minute or so, he was going limp then waking up and going limp etc. the whole time he’s just in a daze saying help me please help me please.”
Another Redditor wrote "Kids and females were on the ground, hurt or unconscious, while people were still running around over them."
Once he noticed the chaos, Taylor stopped the performance, yelling out “No one is fucking getting hurt on my fucking watch, do you understand me?”
It seems that everything was fine after that and the show resumed with no incident.
Knotfest SB was crazy fucking good. Mosh pits were so fucking rowdy, crazy good but some chicks started to get trampled & have seizures. Corey got mad, he stopped the song because people wouldn’t stop moving to get EMT In. from r/Slipknot
