Fire At Slipknot's Phoenix, AZ Show

Slipknot Forced To Pause Phoenix, AZ Show Due To Fans Starting A Bonfire


Rowdy fans in Phoenix, AZ forced Slipknot to pause their headlining performance at the Ak-Chin Pavilion last night, November 02nd. During the eleventh song of the set, “All Out Life“, A group of attendees proceeded to ignite a bonfire out of chairs in the middle of the lawn area and circle pit around it.

Safety concerns over the growing fire eventually forced the band to stop their set while officials came out and extinguished the blaze. Two songs were scrapped from the band’s setlist to accommodate the lost time, but the band did return to play three more songs as an encore.

The show was the closing date to the band’s ‘Knotfest Roadshow‘ tour, with the group next set to hit the stage this Friday, November 05th at the Banc Of California Stadium for their headlining ‘Knotfest Los Angeles‘ festival. Select performances from that event will also be livestreamed across the internet with tickets available here..
