Korn Cancels Numerous May Tour Dates Due To Unforeseen Circumstances

Back in March, the guys in Korn announced their latest tour “The Serenity Of Suffering” Tour which I discussed on THIS LINK. In addition to that, the band was hitting a lot of other spots as a headliner but alas there seems to be a fly in the ointment at the moment as you can see in this quote that was on the band’s Official Facebook Page earlier today. I’ve copied it for your indulgence.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we will be rescheduling a majority of our May tour dates. We will still be performing at Carolina Rebellion on May 6th, Pointfest on May 13th and Rock On The Range on May 20th. All tickets will be honored, or refunded at the point of purchase. Stay tuned for more information regarding rescheduling the dates.”

Postponed Korn Tour Dates:
5/07 – Silver Spring, Md. @ The Fillmore
5/09 – Huntington, N.Y. @ The Paramount
5/10 – Pittsburgh, Pa. @ Stage AE
5/11 – Grand Rapids, Mich. @ 20 Monroe Live

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey, stuff happens and I am not going to dig too deeply into this and instead will just have this be information on what fans with tickets need to do about a refund or to make note of when a reschedule happens. Should I get that information to my Metal Command HQ I will be sure to add it to a post for your edification. Now back to our regularly scheduled everything else.
