The May 22 and May 23 concerts at Banc Of California stadium in Los Angeles, California featuring SYSTEM OF A DOWN, KORN and FAITH NO MORE have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic that is sweeping the globe. The new dates have not yet been announced. HELMET and RUSSIAN CIRCLES were also slated to appear on the bill.
KORN announced the postponement in a statement earlier today. They wrote: "Our upcoming Banc Of California stadium shows on May 22 & 23 are proactively being rescheduled out of an abundance of caution for our fans, crew, and venue staff.
"As soon as we have the new dates finalized, we will inform everyone, and all tickets will be honored accordingly.
"For further ticket information, visit livenation.com/ticketrelief or your point of purchase.
"To our amazing fans, thank you for understanding."
SYSTEM OF A DOWN has toured intermittently since ending its hiatus in 2011 but has yet to record a follow-up to its "Mezmerize" and "Hypnotize" albums, which came out in 2005.
SYSTEM OF A DOWN played a couple of live shows last May, including headlining slots at Columbus, Ohio's Sonic Temple festival and Chicago Open Air.
This past September, KORN's latest album, "The Nothing", debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart with 33,000 equivalent album units earned (of which 29,000 were in album sales) in its first week of release. KORN tied VAN HALEN for the fifth-most top 10s on the chart among rock bands; ahead of them: THE ROLLING STONES, with 37, THE BEATLES (32),DAVE MATTHEWS BAND (16) and SANTANA (16). "The Nothing" is KORN's 14th Billboard 200 top 10 album.
"The Nothing" was released on September 13 via Roadrunner/Elektra. The follow-up to 2016's "The Serenity Of Suffering" was once again produced by Nick Raskulinecz.
FAITH NO MORE recently announced its first live performances in five years.
The shows were scheduled to come half a decade after the release of the group's acclaimed reunion album, "Sol Invictus".
FAITH NO MORE initially reunited for touring purposes in 2009, twelve years after issuing its previous studio set, "Album Of The Year", and followed that up with the aforementioned "Sol Invictus".
