Corey posted on Twitter yesterday (Wednesday), assuring fans that he was OK and had merely suffered a bad case of heatstroke. He said: "Hello everyone. I'm fine - just overheated in Dallas last night. Ready and waiting for Houston! Thank you to everyone for your concerns!"
Slipknot's website administrator, JoJo, told MetalTalk: "The heat in Texas was well up in the hundreds, and it was a mix of that heat, charging around the stage in that mask with stage lights, pyro etc etc.
"Hydration is the key. Thankfully he has said he is ok, and thanks everyone for their concern."
