Korn Cancel New York Show Due To Lead Singer's Exhaustion
Doctor's orders cancelled a scheduled Korn concert at RPI Fieldhouse in Troy, N.Y. on Wednesday (Nov. 4), due to exhaustion on the part of lead singer Jonathan Davis, according to Peter Katsis of The Firm, the band's Los Angeles-based management company.
"Jonathan has reached a point of exhaustion and it was suggested by a doctor that he sit out a few days," says Katsis. "The doctor basically said that if we are planning on finishing the last three weeks of the tour, we'd better give him a rest."
Korn had an already scheduled day off Thursday (Nov. 5) and, according to Katsis, Friday's show at the Mullins Center in Amherst, Mass., will go on as scheduled. The band apologized to fans in Troy and will reschedule the show at a date to be determined.
The final date of the band's current tour is scheduled for Nov. 21 in Nashville. Korn set out on the Family Values tour, which just finished up on Halloween, on Sept. 22 (allstar, Aug. 13). They are scheduled to join Australia's Big Day Out tour with Marilyn Manson, among others, on Jan. 13 in Auckland, New Zealand.
