Korn Postpones Upcoming Shows “Due to Unforeseen Circumstances”

If you were expecting to see Korn this month, you may be disappointed.

The group has postponed eight headlining shows between May 7-8 "due to unforeseen circumstances," according to a message on Facebook. The group will keep its commitments to the Carolina Rebellion festival on May 6, Pointfest on May 13 and Rock on the Range on May 20 and says it will reschedule the postponed shows.

No further explanation was given; The group recently finished a short run through South America during which Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo's 12-year-old son Tye subbed for Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, who was MIA due to similar "unforeseen circumstance.

Korn hasn't announced whether Fieldy will be back for the May shows.

Korn is also slated to tour this summer with Stone Sour, starting June 16 in Salt Lake City.
