Earlier on we told you all about Slipknot bassist Alex ‘Vman’ Venturella being taken to hospital during the band’s set in Conneticut last night.

We have since found out through a statement from the band that Alex is fortunately on his way to recovery!

Read the statement below:
After a medical emergency during last night’s show, we are relieved to let everyone know that our bass player, Alex ‘V-Man’ Venturella, is well on the road to recovery. Alex collapsed mid-set after feeling unwell and as a precautionary measure was taken to hospital where he was found to be suffering from severe dehydration. After recuperating overnight, he has now been discharged from hospital and is on his way back to his Slipknot family. All being well, Alex will be back onstage with us tomorrow in Mansfield, MA. We thank everyone who reached out with messages and well wishes for Alex and we look forward to be being back at full tilt for the rest of the Summer’s Last Stand tour.”

It’s such a relief that Alex is going to be okay – we can’t wait for the rest of the tour!
