KORN have now had to reschedule an additional five shows on their current U.S. tour due to lead singer Jonathan Davis contracting COVID-19.
KORN shared the news of the postponement in a statement posted on social media, writing: “We really appreciate your patience as we work out the next steps for our tour.
“On Saturday, we received the unfortunate news that Jonathan tested positive for Covid, and needless to say, we had to postpone the show last minute. As a result of his positive test, we also need to reschedule the next handful of shows.
“As always, our primary goal is to ensure the safety of everyone involved, so this is something that has to be done. Jonathan’s spirits are high, and he’s resting and recovering now.
“We’re as disappointed as you are about the circumstances, but we’ll get through it though, and we can’t wait to see you once we’re back, firing on all cylinders once again.
“We thank you all for your love and support!”
