At one point, in between songs, Fred says “Slipknot’s from somewhere around here, aren’t they?” And the crowd responds “Joey! Joey! Joey!”
Durst continued “Rest in peace, let’s hear it. That’s beautiful. Life is short and it’s always fleeting so, man, let’s just remember all we are is right now. Let’s make the most of it, let’s make it fucking awesome. You never know, man. You never never never know.”

Jordison passed away last week this week at age 46. Tributes began pouring in from all across the metal world, and Slipknot blacked out their social media as a tribute to Jordison. The band has memorialized Jordison in an eight-minute video montage, which you can watch here. Slipknot wrote:
"Our hearts go out to Joey's family and loved ones at this time of tremendous loss," said Slipknot in their first written statement since Jordison's passing. "Joey Jordison's art, talent, and spirit could not be contained or be held back. Joey's impact on Slipknot, on our lives, and on the music that he loved, is incalculable. Without him there would be no us. We mourn his loss with the entire Slipknot family. We love you, Joey."
