SLIPKNOT Observe 'No Cursing', 'No Obscene Gestures' Rules During Singapore Performance

According to The Electric New Paper, SLIPKNOT — who are known for outrageous stage antics — were handed out a list of no-nos by the local authorities prior to their August 16 performance at the Fort Canning Park in Singapore. Among the rules set by the officials were the folowing:

*No obscene gestures of any kind.
*No cursing.
*No vomiting. No simulation of humping on metal objects.
*No throwing of feces.
*No jumping off the stage.
*No throwing water bottles into the audience.

If the masked metallers wanted to play to their fans — known affectionately as "maggots" — at Fort Canning Park, they had to follow the rules. And they did.

Besides the band's hit singles, the almost sold-out crowd of 5,000 was treated to rare tracks like "Purity", something the band hasn't done "in a long time."

"Are you ready Singapore for the chaos?" frontman Corey Taylor growled out to the ecstatic fans.

"They said it would never happen, we would never cross the border. And now here we are."

The crowd had formed what was probably the largest and most intense mosh-pit ever seen in Singapore.

SLIPKNOT worked the audience up like no other band could. Concerns of tight security didn't plague the gig and there was abundant slam-dancing throughout the show. The Electric New Paper reporter was right in the middle of it.

"We are family. And family takes care of each other," a concerned Taylor addressed the mosh-pit. He wanted to make sure no-one was hurt.
