Slipknot bassist Alex ‘Vman’ Venturella was rushed to hospital while the bad were in the middle of a show.
The unknown medical emergency happened while the band were half way through a show in Hartford, Connecticut.
The band left the stage with Venturella and returned 20 minutes later to continue the show. Corey Taylor made the following announcement: “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 fucking noise for him. Send him some fucking love. Now, we had a choice to come back out here. We’ve had to modify some shit, but we’re gonna keep on playing for you. It’s what we want, it’s what Alex would fucking want.”
Here is footage that was taken by a fan who was moaning about getting his money back, I guess he didn’t think seeing Lamb of God, Bullet for my valentine and Motionless in White was worth his money…
