TINLEY PARK, IL (CelebrityAccess) — A Zion man died during Slipknot’s Knotfest Roadshow touring heavy metal festival at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park Sunday night.

According to The Patch, Richard Valadez, 62, of the 2300 block Galilee Avenue in Zion, was pronounced dead at 11:34 p.m, after witnesses reported seeing him collapse at the music festival.

Witnesses reported attempting to help the man who then suffered a seizure.

The circumstances surrounding Valadez’s death are unclear, with Tinley Park Fire Chief Forest Reeder telling the Patch that his department did not respond to the emergency call, which was handled instead by a private contractor.

According to Billboard, a spokesperson for the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said an autopsy was conducted but a cause of death will not be determined until further tests have been conducted.

Knotfest is headed for Noble Springs, Ark. on Friday night, followed by Bonner Springs, Ind. on Saturday.
