Just before the SLIPKNOT‘s last show on their European tour, an oxygen tank fell on frontman Corey Taylor foot, but didn’t stop him from performing the show.
The incident happened on February 24 in Helsinki, Finland.
Below you can watch Corey Taylor addressing the crowd on the matter: “I’m just gonna let you in on a little something. As I was coming up on stage an oxygen tank fell from a case and landed on my foot and I’m fairly certain I have broken bones in my foot.
“So… there’s no way that we’re not f*cking playing this f*cking show, I’m just letting you know. I may have to hobble around and just fight through it, but I’m gonna give you everything I’ve got god dammit, you gonna give me everything you’ve f*cking got?”
SLIPKNOT recently announced that they will once again be hitting the road this summer to headline the “Knotfest Roadshow” 2020 North American tour produced by Live Nation.
