Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Passes Out Onstage at Dallas Mayhem Gig

Corey Taylor of Slipknot
Mary Ouellette,

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor had a scare last night (July 10) when he passed out near the end of the band’s performance at the Dallas, Texas, stop of the Mayhem Festival tour. Thankfully, the vocalist is OK, and will be back in action for the next Mayhem gig near Houston tonight (July 11).

Taylor’s fainting episode comes on the heels of news that guitarist Jim Root was skipping the first several shows of the Mayhem tour to recover from a near-fatal burst appendix.

The Mayhem Festival also features such acts as Slayer, Motorhead, Anthrax, As I Lay Dying, the Devil Wears Prada and more. Slipknot are performing in the headlining slot. Today, Taylor took to his Twitter account to inform fans that he is doing well:



We recently chatted with Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn, and he talked about how much energy the band puts into each show. See our full interview with Fehn here.

Fan-filmed video of Taylor passing out can be seen below. In the clip, Taylor is seen getting dizzy before the camera pans away. It then returns to find members of the band’s crew lifting Taylor off the stage. Watch it below:
