Korn Tour To Continue Even After Guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer Tests Positive For COVID-19

Korn have announced that their current U.S. tour will continue despite rhythm guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer testing positive for the coronavirus.

However, the band also announced that Shaffer will not play at their upcoming shows.

“Unfortunately, Munky has tested positive for COVID,” said a statement from the band posted to social media. “He is doing OK, but he will not be playing some of our upcoming shows

“The tour is going on as scheduled despite these circumstances, and we are anticipating a speedy recovery,” Korn said.

Korn frontman Jonathan Davis tested positive for COVID-19 last month, forcing the band to cancel or postpone a number of dates. The tour restarted on August 27 at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Illinois.
