Fan Dies While Attending Slipknot’s Knotfest Roadshow Tour in Illinois

Following a report from Blabbermouth.net and Patch.com, a local man died after suffering a seizure after moshing at a Slipknot concert this week. According to Patch.com, a 62-year-old man died after falling to the ground during this past Sunday’s (August 11) Knotfest Roadshow concert at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Illinois. Richard Valadez was pronounced dead at 11:34 p.m. The cause of his death is not yet known, and an autopsy is pending, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. Witnesses told Patch.com that Valadez joined in some of the mosh pits that formed in the lawn section and was knocked to the ground at least once. About an hour into headliner’s set, he fell out of the pit and into the grass. As people were trying to help him up, he suffered a seizure and witnesses called for help. Two men performed CPR on him before staff and emergency personnel showed up to assist Valadez. Ten years ago a Slipknot fan died after suffering a heart attack at a Slipknot show in their home state of Iowa. Further information can be read below and at the link. The band has yet to comment on this. This a terrible tragedy that Mr. Valdez lost his life and our hearts are with his family and friends at this time. Although we are all out to have a great time at concerts, please remain vigilant at all times. If someone falls down moshing, pick them up and if they are ill, alert security at once so they made help right away. Continue reading

Watch Slipknot Headline The Iowa State Fair

In a career full of huge achievements, Slipknot toppled another one last night. They headlined the vaunted Iowa State Fair in their home town of Des Moines Iowa, and it was a banger. The fair is no stranger to metal after Metallica headlined their in the 1990s, but it’s definitely not par for the course. The band played pretty much the same setlist they have during the Knotfest Roadshow Tour so far but definitely included a few more recent songs, including ‘Unsainted ‘from We Are Not Your Kind. Check out the fan-filmed footage below! Continue reading
