SLIPKNOT And EVANESCENCE Forced To Cancel Performances At KNOTFEST MEETS FORCEFEST Due To Broken Stage Barricade

 
SLIPKNOT and EVANESCENCE were forced to cancel their appearances at the first day of the Knotfest Meets Forcefest in Mexico City Saturday night (November 30) due to a security issue.

According to reports, the stage barricade broke during BEHEMOTH's set and it was impossible to fix it in time for either of the two final bands to perform.

A short time later, SLIPKNOT released a statement about the cancelation. They said: "Because of a broken barricade and failed attempts to fix it, SLIPKNOT were forced to cancel our performance last night. Safety especially the safety of our fans and fellow bands is priority number one. We apologize profusely and hope you all understand. If anything were to happen to any of you, we wouldn't forgive ourselves. Also, if we could have fixed the barricade correctly, we would have gone on stage. Again, we hope you all understand and we will try to make it up to you as soon as we can."

In a video message, EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee said: "Mexico City, we are so, so disappointed that we didn't get our chance to play for you tonight at Knotfest. The last couple of bands didn't get to play because of a safety issue with the barricades and it wasn't something that could be fixed. We are so sorry. We love you so much. We were waiting there, just like you, hoping that we would get our chance, but it didn't work out tonight. I don't know how, but somehow we are going to make it up to you. We love you so much. We'll see you next time."

The first-ever Knotfest Meets Forcefest is being held over two days at the Parque Deportivo Ocean?a venue. This year, Knotfest joined forces with Forcefest, combining two massive festival brands over one weekend. The Knotfest day was scheduled to take place on Saturday, with Forcefest happening on Sunday, December 1, headlined by Rob Zombie.

Knotfest is the brainchild of SLIPKNOT and the band's longtime manager, Cory Brennan of 5B Artists And Media. Started in 2012, the brand has grown at an exponential rate and already seen expansion across the globe to Tokyo, Mexico City, France, Bogot? and, of course, the USA. With big plans to expand into further new territories in 2020, the cultural phenomenon that Knotfest has created shows no signs of slowing down.

SLIPKNOT is continuing to tour in support of its sixth studio album, "We Are Not Your Kind", which was released in August via Roadrunner Records.
