KORN tour bus was hit by gunfire overnight in Iowa, TMZ reports.
The band is close to wrapping the U.S. tour — with a stop in Iowa Friday night — but just 24 hours before the show, the tour bus was hit while parked outside a hotel in Davenport, IA.
A spokesperson for the Davenport Police Department told TMZ they got a call Friday morning for a vehicle that had been hit overnight. Cops say the bus — which was parked on the street — had been hit by a single bullet. No one was injured in the incident.
A source familiar with the situation tells us the bullet pierced the exterior wall of the bus and was found inside the cabin. The saving grace here is that no one was on board at the time of the shooting.

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.
