Corey Taylor passes out on stage…

SLIPKNOT frontman, and all time rock legend passes out on stage in Dallas, part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour, on Tuesday night (10th) when he just about finished the flash song. The incident was filmed by a member of the crowd (around the 1:40 mark..), which is up on youtube, which you can watch after the break.

Corey tweeted earlier saying “I’m fine — just overheated in Dallas last night. Ready and waiting for Houston! Thank you to everyone for your concerns!”.

Some good news though, Slipknot will be filming their final performance of 2012 for everybody to see, via a special pay per view service, which will cost around $15 for early bird buyers, with the normal price being around the $20 mark. The official website for it went live today (11.7), which can be seen at the whole affair is called Knotfest and is a 2 date hard rocking festival type thing, in Somerset, Wisconsin. Oh how we wish we could go.

The ‘knot’s percussionist Shawn Crahan (Clown) said it’s one of their long time dreams creating an event like Knotfest.

“Our goal was to create a festival experience which screamed our vision. It means everything for everyone to see the live spectacle we’re creating in the flesh, but we understand some fans around the world can’t be at the show. We’ve now made it possible for you to be there in spirit — so join us live on August 18th.”
