Hard rock veterans Korn launched a big tour with Staind in early August, but the trek has already run into issues, as vocalist Jonathan Davis has tested positive for COVID-19. The news came from the band on Monday, after a gig the previous weekend in New Jersey was postponed.

The band followed up that initial announcement with a full statement on social media confirming Davis was the one who tested positive, prompting the postponement and a handful of other tour adjustments, including a few shows that were outright cancelled.

The band’s statement:

“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!”
