Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT) had a frightening moment last night (June 29) at the end of the show in Georgia. After the final song of Slipknot’s gig, vocalist Corey Taylor took a hard fall onstage (video above) and had to be carried off by the band’s crew.
 

A fan told Blabbermouth “I was front row and after the final song, after the usual thanking and waving to the crowd, Corey Taylor collapsed on stage and had to be carried off by the stage crew. As I was leaving, EMTs were rushing backstage. Throughout the show he was clearly in pain from his neck but still clearly gave it all he could. The neck pain/previous injury plus the 95º Atlanta heat and his fully-covering outfit=a downed frontman. He was shaking and looked to not be in a good way as they pulled him off."

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor has been ordered by doctors to refrain from headbanging and jumping when the band kicks off its summer tour later this month.

SLIPKNOT was forced to postpone the first two weeks of its North American trek with MARILYN MANSON after Taylor underwent what he described as "an unplanned spinal surgery." The trek, which also includes OF MICE & MEN in the opening slot, was supposed to kick off on June 9 in Salt Lake City but will now begin on June 28 in Nashville.

In a brand new tweet, Corey revealed that his "follow-up appointment" with the doctor went "great," but added that "for now," there will be "no headbanging" or "jumping" for him for the foreseeable future. He went on to say: "But I'll sing my ass off." He also offered that he expects to be "back to 90 percent" within the next four to six months, and "100 percent" in a year.

The summer trek is likely to be SLIPKNOT's last U.S. tour in support of its latest album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", which was released in October 2014.

Following the tour, SLIPKNOT and BLACK SABBATH will co-headline the combined Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, a two-day festival scheduled for September 24-25 in San Bernardino, California.

A report over at TMZ.com has word that county fire officials have shutdown Slipknot‘s plans to burn camel dung at this years US ‘Knotfest‘. However, the report doesn’t cite the burning feces as the main problem, but rather the oil—though both are considered a public nuisance.

While the original press release did state that burning camel dung and oil would become ‘the scent of Knotfest‘—band percussionist/originator of the idea, M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, was quick to correct the press release, stating that oil was not involved.

A representative for the ‘Knotfest‘ has told TMZ that they are currently exploring other avenues to fulfill their aromatic plans. The festival will be held at the San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds in San Bernardino, CA from October 24th-26th.

Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan has elaborated on just why the band intend to burn camel shit during the upcoming US ‘KNOTFEST‘. Shawn Crahan points out though that despite the press release mentioning oil would also be involved, it will be pure camel dung that will be burned during the fest. Speaking with Rolling Stone of the matter, he offered:

“We did the camel dung on the first Knotfest. It was awesome; it was beautiful. came into the museum and they had to be hit with camel shit. A very distinct smell. You can’t huff it, but it’s got this smell. And it’s not necessarily the most comfortable thing, but its not necessarily the worst thing, it’s just remembering thoughts — it’s gonna be a reoccurring thing.”

“I write down things in life that are special, that only living in this thought process can you ever obtain. Freshly mowed grass. How it smells when a nice spring rain hits. Because of Iowa, I like being in a different state that doesn’t even have grass and think that I smell fresh-cut grass. It brings me home.

Makes me feel safe… So, I figure, since we’re not a band anymore — we’re a culture, everybody needs to get used to that real quick — that the culture has to have a smell. You have to be able to be somewhere in the world, maybe be in a little pain, and then all of a sudden smell that and feel good again.”

.5: The Gray Chapter” is due in stores October 21st on Roadrunner. Pre-Order the brand new album now from iTunes / Amazon.com.

The US ‘KNOTFEST‘ will be held at held at the San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds in San Bernardino, CA October 25th-26th.
