According to the recent statement of Slipknot’s official social media pages, the iconic band had to cancel their upcoming Knotfest collaboration with ‘Evanescence.’

The official announcement indicated that the shows canceled due to a broken and could not be fixed barricade, the band will not be on stage.

Here is the official announcement of Slipknot:

“Because of a broken barricade and failed attempts to fix it, Slipknot were forced to cancel our performance last night. Safety – especially the safety of our fans and fellow bands – is priority number one.

We apologize profusely and hope you all understand. If anything were to happen to ANY of you, we wouldn’t forgive ourselves. Also, if we could have fixed the barricade correctly, we would have gone onstage. Again, we hope you understand and we will try to make it up to you as soon as we can. #knotfestmexico”

Evanescence singer Amy Lee also made an official statement and revealed the latest status.

Here is what she said:

“Mexico City, we are so, so disappointed that we didn’t get our chance to play for you tonight at Knotfest. The last couple of bands didn’t get to play because of a safety issue with the barricades and it wasn’t something that could be fixed.

We are so sorry. We love you so much. We were waiting there, just like you, hoping that we would get our chance, but it didn’t work out tonight. I don’t know how, but somehow we are going to make it up to you. We love you so much. We’ll see you next time.”
