After Korn was forced to cancel a Saturday concert in Pennsylvania when a member of their “camp” tested positive for COVID-19, the band confirmed Monday that their lead singer, Jonathan Davis, is battling the virus.

Taking to Facebook, the two-time Grammy-winning band updated fans about their upcoming concert dates.

“We really appreciate your patience as we work out the next steps for our tour. 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,” the rockers explained. “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.”

Korn assured fans that Davis is doing okay, saying, “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,” the band closed before revealing which shows have been postponed while others will not be rescheduled.

The two cancelled dates are on August 24 and 25, in Darien Center and Syracuse, New York, respectively, “due to scheduling conflicts.”  Those who held tickets for the cancelled shows will be “contacted for refunds.”

Here is the new list of dates for the rescheduled shows:

9/25 — Scranton, PA, The Pavilion at Montage Mountain
9/28 — Wantagh, NY, Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater
9/26 — Holmdel, NJ, PNC Bank Arts Cente
10/2 —  Hartford, CT, XFINITY Theatre
10/1 — Mansfield, MA, Xfinity Center
10/3 —  Gilford, NH, Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion
