Korn frontman Jonathan Davis has tested positive for COVID-19. On Saturday, August 14, Korn cancelled their performance at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA just hours before doors opened due to someone in the Korn camp testing positive for COVID-19. On Monday, the band confirmed in a statement that the person who tested positive was Davis.

“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!”

The band’s shows on August 24 at the Darien Lake Amphitheater in Darien Center, NY and August 25 at the St. Joseph’s Health Ampitheater at Lakeview in Syracuse, NY have been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts. Ticketholders for these two dates will be contacted for refunds.

Jonathan Davis and Korn last performed on Friday, August 13, at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, NJ.

Korn’s return to the road has been highly-anticipated. This tour is truly the first time they are getting to support their latest album – 2019’s The Nothing. However, the tour has not been without its setbacks. Before Davis was sidelined with COVID-19, bassist Fieldy pulled out of the tour to focus on his personal wellness.
