KORN Cancels Shows In Russia ‘To Stand In Solidarity With Ukraine’

Korn 2021

KORN has canceled its previously announced shows in Russia and Ukraine which were scheduled to take place in June.

Band said in a statement: “Due to the ongoing circumstances in Ukraine, we’ve come to the only available option, which is to cancel our shows there and in Russia. We were greatly looking forward to reconnecting with our fans in these countries, but we are taking this step to stand in solidarity with Ukraine. We also acknowledge our fans in Russia who stand united with the people of Ukraine in their fight for peace.

“We’re very sorry to our fans in both countries, and most importantly, our prayers go out to all involved.

“Please contact the point of purchase for refunds.

“We will now be headlining Tons Of Rock Festival in Norway on June 24 in its place.”

KORN‘s latest studio album, Requiem, was released on February 4 via Loma Vista Recordings.

Requiem was created during the COVID-19 pandemic while KORN could not tour or play live shows for the first time in the band’s career. Because of the time afforded to them, and without the pressure, KORN embraced a new creative process and took the time to experiment together and more.
