Slipknot performed in Winnipeg earlier in the week as Taylor brought the show to a halt when he noticed a fan had fallen in the pit, Blabbermouth reports. Taylor addressed the crowd in order to alert paramedics to the situation.
“Everybody make room. Everybody back up. Come on. Make some room. They can't breathe if everybody's around them," Taylor said. As the crowd began to applaud, Taylor cautioned "Hold on, guys. No applause yet. I wanna make sure that they're okay. I wanna make sure that they get out of the pit 100 percent okay. Hold on one second, guys. I appreciate that."
Taylor made sure the medics could safely make their way out of the crowd, saying, “we've got a clear path right here. As soon as they're safe, we're starting this f*****g thing again.”
