Korn's Jonathan Davis tests positive for COVID-19, band rescheduling tour dates
Korn is rescheduling some of its future tour dates after frontman Jonathan Davis tested positive for COVID-19, which prompted the nu-metal band to cancel its show on Saturday.
"We really appreciate your patience as we work out the next steps for our tour," the group said in a statement released on social media Monday. "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," the statement read.
Davis, 50, is now "resting and recovering," though he's in good spirits, according to the band.
"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," their statement concluded. "We thank you all for your love and support!"
Korn was initially set to perform on Saturday at the Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The concert was canceled hours before its start time due to a "confirmed COVID-19 case within the Korn camp," said a message posted to Korn's social media accounts at the time.
The Scranton show has since been rescheduled for Sept. 25. Other postponed tour dates include performances in Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
Previously scheduled New York shows in Syracuse and at the Darien Center have been canceled due to scheduling conflicts.
