Slipknot's show at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, IL on August 11 turned tragic when Richard Valadez, 62, collapsed and died in the crowd. About an hour into Slipknot's set, during their performance of "Sulfur", Valadez was allegedly hit too hard and fell out of the pit. It took from 15 to 25 minutes for staff or emergency personnel to even get to Valadez, and one report said multiple fans were disturbed by the slow response time.
