Slipknot reveal the cause of bassist's medical emergency


Slipknot revealed the cause of the medical emergency of bassist Alessandro Venturella, who had to leave the stage during the show in Hartford. Below the message of the band.


Slipknot said: "After a medical emergency during last night's show, we are relieved to let everyone know that our bass player, Alex 'V-Man' Venturella, is well on the road to recovery. Alex collapsed mid-set after feeling unwell and as a precautionary measure was taken to hospital where he was found to be suffering from severe dehydration. After recuperating overnight, he has now been discharged from hospital and is on his way back to his Slipknot family. All being well, Alex will be back onstage with us tomorrow in Mansfield, MA. We thank everyone who reached out with messages and well wishes for Alex and we look forward to be being back at full tilt for the rest of the Summer's Last Stand tour."
