Korn was forced to cancel a Saturday night concert in Pennsylvania a few hours before start time after a member of their “camp” tested positive for COVID-19.

In a statement on social media, the “Freak on a Leash” rockers tweeted, “Unfortunately, there has been a confirmed COVID-19 case within the Korn camp. The safety of our artists, crew, venue staff, and fans are our top priority, so we must postpone the show tonight.”

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

Korn didn’t disclose who contracted the illness and have not returned request for comment.  It’s unknown how the positive COVID case will affect their future tour dates.

Korn’s next scheduled to perform this Tuesday in Wantagh, NY, at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.
