Slipknot had to cancel their Mexico Knotfest date on Nov 30th due to safety issues.
A video widely circulated on Twitter shows a group of fans who broke through the barricade running on to the stage and smashing some of Evanescence’s gear. The barricade had not been properly repaired prior to the bands performing.
Slipknot issued this statement:
“Because of a broken barricade and failed attempts to fix it, Slipknot were forced to cancel our performance last night. Safety — especially the safety of our fans and fellow bands — is priority number one. We apologize profusely and hope you all understand. If anything were to happen to any of you, we wouldn’t forgive ourselves. Also, if we could have fixed the barricade correctly, we would have gone on stage. Again, we hope you all understand and we will try to make it up to you as soon as we can.”
