Update: Slipknot have issued an update on the health of bassist Alessandro “Alex” Venturella, who has been discharged from the hospital. It reads as follows:

After a medical emergency during last night’s show, we are relieved to let everyone know that our bass player, Alex ‘V-Man’ Venturella, is well on the road to recovery. Alex collapsed mid-set after feeling unwell and as a precautionary measure was taken to hospital where he was found to be suffering from severe dehydration. After recuperating overnight, he has now been discharged from hospital and is on his way back to his Slipknot family. All being well, Alex will be back onstage with us tomorrow in Mansfield, MA. We thank everyone who reached out with messages and well wishes for Alex and we look forward to be being back at full tilt for the rest of the Summer’s Last Stand tour.

Upon resuming the show, frontman Corey Taylor addressed the crowd (watch above), saying, “I’m gonna let you know what’s going on right now. I’m sorry to say that our bass player, Alex, had… Something happened. I’m not sure what happened. He’s been put into an ambulance and he’s going to the hospital right now as we speak. But I want you all to make f—ing noise for him. Send him some f—ing love. Now, we had a choice to come back out here. We’ve had to modify some s–t, but we’re gonna keep on playing for you. It’s what we want, it’s what Alex would f—ing want.”
