KORN: European Tour Officially Cancelled

KORN have officially cancelled their European tour after frontman Jonathan Davis was admitted to a London hospital Friday with a blood disorder called immune thrombocytopenic purpura, which is described as a clotting disorder.

The alternative metal act played a shortened set on Saturday (June 10) at the Download festival with the help of guest vocalists from SLIPKNOT, DEVILDRIVER, 10 YEARS, SKINDRED and AVENGED SEVENFOLD.

According to Billboard.com, Davis has been ordered by doctors not to perform for several weeks, necessitating scrapping dates through July 2 in Leipzig, Germany. The band is hoping to reschedule the shows later this year.

Davis' illness is not expected to affect the band's Family Values tour, which is due to begin July 27 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. DEFTONES, STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF and DIR EN GRAY will also be on that bill.
