Korn delay show because of Covid case inside the band’s camp

Korn were forced to postpone their concert Saturday August 14 at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania because of an undisclosed individual from the Korn camp testing positive for Covid-19.

The band shared the news by means of an assertion on their online media that read as follows:

“Unfortunately, there has been a confirmed COVID-19 case inside the KORN camp. The security of our craftsmen, group, setting staff, and fans are our main concern, so we should delay the show this evening.

“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. Thank you for your understanding, and stay safe out there. We’ll be back soon.”

Last week Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden likewise needed to postpone his expressed word shows until October after he tried positive for Covid, while he and other rockstars including Gene Simmons of Kiss and Sebastian Bach – who has as of late combat the infection – have been empowering their fans to get inoculated.

“I think every American should be mandated to be vaccinated,” Sebastian Bach told KNX In Depth. “There’s no motivation behind why not to – except if you have a previous wellbeing circumstance where you can’t get it. Yet, other than that, the lone way we’re ever going to perhaps recover is by doing that. Regardless of whether everyone did do that, who can say for sure what it would resemble?

“But there’s no way we can get back to quote-unquote normal if people aren’t all gonna get in this together. There’s no politics in health or medicine. Everybody is in it together. Everybody gets sick.” Earlier this week, he told CNN, “I don’t understand politicising medicine; it doesn’t make sense to me. So my advice to the fans would be get the vaccine. You don’t want polio, so you get the vaccine for that. You don’t want COVID.”
