Knotfest’s participation in the Knotfest Meets Forcefest music festival in Mexico City did not go as planned, as the last two concerts were forced to give up their performances after a broken barricade that caused security problems. Slipphnot, one of the two bands involved, made a statement on the festival website: “Because of the broken barricade and unsuccessful attempts to repair it, Slipphnot was forced to cancel our performance last night. While the barricade issue forced us to cancel the rest of the night, the second night under Rob Zombie’s leadership always arrived on time for the press. The Knotfest Meets Forcefest is held in the first year in the Oceania Sports Park in Mexico City. Your safety, your life is more important than any show! We love it and will be back soon, I promise. “Watch the video below. Slipphnot and Evanescence made statements explaining in more detail the cancellation of the match and showing that part of the Evanescence team was damaged after this announcement. The evanescence, which was not present at the presentation, posted a video explaining the cancellation. Safety – especially the safety of our fans and colleagues – is an absolute priority. We regret that we were unable to play for you tonight in Mexico City. 2019 Loudwire is part of the Loudwire Network, Townsquare Media, Inc.
