Last night (July 16), KORN performed their first show with Roberto “Ra” Díaz (SUICIDAL TENDENCIES) at the Upheaval festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Fan-filmed video footage can be seen below.
Díaz is filling in for bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu who announced that he would sit out the trek in order to “heal” after “falling back” on some of his “bad habits.”
Fieldy previously issued a following statement: “To all Korn fans worldwide.
“The past 6 years I’ve been dealing with some personal issues that at times have caused me to fall back on some of my bad habits and has caused some tension with the people around me. It’s been suggested to me to take some time off to heal. I’m going to respect what was asked of me and take that time. Unfortunately you will not see me on stage with my band.
“I will be working towards getting the bad habits out of my system. In the meantime I will be staying creative to keep my mind & soul in a good place.
“I’m thankful for all of your support, patience & understanding as we all have something that we deal with.
“Jonathan, Munky, Ray and Head, I love you and I don’t want to bring any tension or bad vibes to the circle.
