During a live show that took place on April 11th, Corey Taylor cut Slipknot‘s performance mid-song so that an injured fan could safely get out of the pit.

In the footage you’ll find below, lights have been turned on and the crowd is cheering. Corey Taylor stands at the front of the stage and points out to the crowd; he tells the crowd to back up and make sure “they have room.” Medics are making their way into the pit to help an injured fan, Corey Taylor continuing to point to where the injured fan is located so medics can find them. As the crowd applauds Taylor, he tells them to hold off on the applause – that he appreciates it – but wants to make sure that the injured fan gets safely out of the pit first. Eventually, as the fan begins to make their way out of the pit, Corey Taylor tells the crowd, “As soon as they are safe, we’re starting this fucking thing again.”

It can be intense sustaining an injury while moshing, so it’s awesome when we see bands and artists do what they can to make sure everyone has a safe and fun time. This also isn’t the first time that Corey Taylor has stopped a show to help out a concertgoer in need; Taylor is one of the many metalheads who have seen a fan in need and have halted their band’s performance to help out an injured fan.
