Circle pits on a hill are usually pretty chaotic, but this one around a bonfire during a Slipknot show last night (November 2) in Phoenix took things to another level.
In the video below, fans stacked up a bunch of folding chairs, lit them on fire and then proceeded to circle the fire.

The lawn pit at Slipknot tonight is fire — literally. pic.twitter.com/IrzgddSOEU— John Marshall (@jmarshallap) November 3, 2021
Per Revolver, “Judging by the litany of videos on Twitter and YouTube, the inferno was shooting up at least 30 feet in the air and was clearly visible from all angles of the massive amphitheater.”
Fortunately, no one was hurt, but according to Setlist.fm, “Fans lit the lawn area on fire during ‘All Out Life,’ stopping the concert for 30 minutes. ‘Duality’ and ‘Spit It Out’ were cut from the show as a result of this.
It’s definitely a bummer Slipknot’s set had to be cut short due to some reckless fans. Twitter user @honeyherbaltea likely put it best sharing, “Whoever started the Slipknot fire, yo mom’s a hoe!!!”
