Korn have been forced to reschedule a "handful" of dates on their huge U.S. tour with Staind after frontman Jonathan Davis tested positive for COVID-19.

The Bakersfield titans have postponed gigs in Scranton, Wantagh, Holmdel, Hartford, Mansfield and Gilford, and sadly had to cancel dates at Darien Center and Syracuse in New York due to "scheduling conflicts".

"We really appreciate your patience as we work out the next steps for our tour," reads a statement. "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.

Hope you feel better soon, JD!
