Footage has emerged of an overzealous fan’s attempt to charge at Corey Taylor on stage in Moscow last week – with the stage invader failing in their efforts after being swiftly body-slammed by security.
Taylor was performing with Stone Sour at Stadium Live in the Russian capital on Friday night (November 16) when the incident occurred. The band are currently touring in support of their June 2017 album ‘Hydrograd’.
Fan-shot footage shows the fan entering the stage from the right during the performance of ‘Bother’, with the fan’s efforts to reach Taylor impeded by the brute force of the security guard, who charges at the intruder at full-speed and knocks him to the ground.
Witnessing the scuffle unfold in front of him, Taylor remarked: “Sucks to be you, dude!” Once the song was over, he warned: “Don’t come on my stage, motherfucker.” Watch footage of the body slam below.
Taylor seemed unfazed by the incident after the show, instead tweeting his appreciation to his fans in Moscow.
Moscow, what a gift. You were INSANE!! All my love to you and yours!! See you again soon!! https://t.co/Y8X5JHkvgV

“It’s one thing to film it, but it’s another thing to just be staring at your screen while you’re filming it,” he said in an interview. “It’s right there! Are you so terrified of real life that you can’t do anything unless it’s on that little four-by-four screen?”
