SLIPKNOT Perform Without Jim Root At Record Breaking Mayhem Fest Show In California - Video Available!

Yesterday (Saturday, June 30), SLIPKNOT were forced to kick off their headlining musical circus at this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival without guitarist Jim Root, who is out of action while recovering from a burst appendix. Video of the bands performance is available below.

The band's set list was as follows:

01. (sic)
02. Eyeless
03. Sulfur
04. The Blister Exists
05. Wait and Bleed
06. Before I Forget
07. Disasterpiece
08. Gently (performed live for first time since 2002)
09. Vermilion
10. Pulse of the Maggots
11. The Heretic Anthem
12. Psychosocial
13. Duality
14. Spit It Out


15. People = Shit
16. Surfacing

Yesterday's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival concert in San Bernardino had a record-breaking attendance of 26,105 — 4,000 more than the previous attendance record set by the tour.

"It always is [tough] when you've got more than one or two records, and it's hard for us to do live too", commented SLIPKNOT percussionist Chris Fehn during an interview with Loudwire.com. "We're not sure what we want to do NEW and what we can play live, what we can't play live cause a lot of it has to do with Jim not being here and stuff like that, which is a big hole in the SLIPKNOT camp right now, but it's always a good problem to have [deciding which songs to feature]. Sometimes what we want, what the fans want, it's a whole different situation. It is difficult, but there'll be more to come."
