Korn called off a concert Saturday night just hours before show time after an undisclosed individual “within the Korn camp” tested positive for COVID-19.
“Unfortunately, there has been a confirmed COVID-19 case within the Korn camp. The safety of our artists, crew, venue staff, and fans are our top priority, so we must postpone the show tonight,” the band said in a statement posted on social media.
Korn and Staind were both scheduled to perform Saturday (Aug. 14) at the Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
“We’re deeply sorry for this unfortunate last minute news, but please hold on to your tickets while we work to get your rescheduled date sorted ASAP with Live Nation and the pavilion at Montage Mountain,” Korn’s note continued. “Thank you for your understanding, and stay safe out there. We’ll be back soon.”
How the positive COVID-19 case will affect the summer tour’s upcoming dates was unclear at press time. Billboard reached out to a representative for the band for further information.
The tour kicked off on Aug. 5 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
