A security issue prevented Mexican fans from seeing the conclusion of last night’s Knotfest in Mexico City (November 30th.) The stage barricade broke during BEHEMOTH’s set and it was impossible to fix in time for the final two acts of the night, SLIPKNOT and EVANESENCE
SLIPKNOT offered this statement to understandably upset fans:
‘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.’.
