After performing with Robert Trujillo‘s 12-year-old son Tye on bass in South America, Korn were slated to hit the U.S. for a small run of headlining dates with Fieldy reclaiming his role. The group has now issued a statement that a number of these shows will not go ahead as planned and will be rescheduled.
Korn made the announcement on Facebook (post below), stating, “Due to unforeseen circumstances, we will be rescheduling a majority of our May tour dates. We will still be performing at Carolina Rebellion on May 6th, Pointfest on May 13th and Rock On The Range on May 20th. All tickets will be honored, or refunded at the point of purchase. Stay tuned for more information regarding rescheduling the dates.” A list of the affected stops can be seen below.
“Unforeseen circumstances” were also cited as the reason why Tye Trujillo was enlisted as a fill-in on Korn’s South American run. The shows went off without a hitch as guitarist Munky was blown away by the youngster’s abilities. “[He] knows like 17, 18 Korn songs and he knows them really well – it’s crazy. All the stops and the breaks… it’s crazy to see somebody that young so talented. He’s gonna be a professional musician and to know that at that early of an age is just inspiring,” the guitarist commented.
Munky also explained how Tye handled himself offstage, adding, “When we go to the shows, he’s got people wanting his picture and his autograph – he’s a little overwhelmed, but he’s handling himself just like his dad, which is cool, collected and modest.”

Janet Jackson is gearing up for a big reveal!
The Pop superstar sent fans into a frenzy moments ago when she launched a mysterious countdown clock on her official website.
Its appearance comes in the wake of mounting speculation that Ms. Jackson is set to return to the road
As widely reported, Janet postponed her ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ in 2016 to “plan a family”, her son Eissa was born in January of this year.
Observant fans who held on to their tickets (after promises of rescheduled shows) noticed updates on their Ticketmaster accounts; specifically revised Fall dates and a new name for the trek – the ‘State Of The World Tour.’
Whatever the case, judging by the clock, definitive word on what’s happening looks set to arrive next Monday (May 1st).
Future has made a few adjustments to his “Nobody Safe Tour,” which starts next week on May 4 in Memphis.
One change to the tour is the removal of Kodak Black who is locked up for violating his house arrest and is now facing jail time that could range from time served to several years. In his place, A$AP Ferg will pick up the slack and take it to a new level.
Future’s “Nobody Safe Tour” will also feature a rotating roster of opening acts including Young Thug, Tory Lanez, Migos, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Zoey Dollaz.
Future also added new dates, including shows in Atlanta, Mountain View, Sacramento, Los Angeles, and San Diego. However, dates in Jackson (May 9) and Denver (June 13) have been canceled.

Adam Lambert has revealed in a interview with NME that singing with Led Zeppelin would be a dream of his.
Lambert, who rose to fame on US talent show American Idol before finding success as a solo artist, has been the touring frontman of Queen and replacement of Freddie Mercury with the band since 2011. Earlier this month, the rock veterans announced a massive arena tour of the UK and Ireland.
Speaking to NME recently, Lambert was asked what other bands he has dreamed of fronting, apart from Queen. He replied: “I’ve got the full fantasy so I don’t know if I would even attempt to do another.
Lambert added: “I don’t know, that’s a big question, I mean I would love to sing some Led Zeppelin.”

T.I. continues to deliver his political commentary about the strain relationship between police and the black community in his new video for “I Believe.” The song is from his latest album, Us or Else: Letter to the System.
The visual, directed by Mike Ho, features Tip playing two different characters – a guy in a black hoodie who is upset that his best friend was killed by police and a preacher man who urges citizens to stay non-violent as they embark on a protest against police.
T.I.’s two characters face off in a heated debate in a church as each one express their viewpoints about how the community should react to police misconduct. “All of your plans ain’t worth a damn / ‘Cause in front of God, you are just a man,” raps the hoodie-wearing T.I. to the MLK-like T.I.
The video then segues into a protest scene where T.I.’s preacher character is leading a march through the streets with demonstrators holding “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” and “Black Lives Matter” signs. The video ends with the preacher and his protesters facing off with police, while the hoodie-wearing T.I. and his crew, watch from a distant and shaking their collective heads.
With his “I Believe” video, T.I. is offering two different viewpoints in the ongoing issue of police brutality in the black community.
Logic addresses the difficult but pertinent topic of suicide on his new song 1-800-273-8255, featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid. The phone number in the title is actually the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
In the song, the DMV rapper plays two roles: One person who seems to be on the brink of taking their life and another who offers some inspiration.
“All this other sh– I’m talkin’ ’bout, they think they know it / I’ve been praying for somebody to save me, no one’s heroic / And my life don’t even matter, I know it, I know it / I know I’m hurting deep down but can’t show it,” raps Logic in the beginning of the song.
Then later, as the role of the comforter, Logic tells the suicidal person that they have every reason to live.
“I know where you been, where you are, where you going / I know you’re the reason I believe in life / What’s the day without a little night? / I’m just trying to shed a little light,” he raps.
In between the verses, Alessia Cara offers some hopeful words with her light, yet throaty vocals and Khalid closes the song out wonderfully.
“1-800-273-8255″ is off of Logic’s forthcoming album Everybody that drops May 5.
Machine Gun Kelly is out for a few days with broken bones in his chest, from an injury he suffered while shooting "Captive State" movie last week.
MGK has a contusion and hairline fracture of the sternum (breastbone), and that's why he's had to reschedule the first 3 stops on his tour. Kelly announced the postponements Thursday night on social media, but kept quiet about the injury.
As reported earlier this week. Kelly struggled through a show last weekend in Florida, even walking off stage at one point. Although he finished the show, it was obvious he was in a ton of pain.
MGK's rep says he's expected to make a full recovery, and Kelly will make up the tour dates.
Young Thug announced that his new album will be executive-produced by none other than Drake himself.
The rapper revealed other details too; the project's CoverGirl-inspired title (E.B.B.T.G.), that it will feature mostly him singing, and that it's dedicated to his fiancee Jerrika Karlae.
It won’t be the first time that Young Thug and Drake have teamed up in 2017, with the ATL rapper featuring on the More Life tracks “Ice Melts” and “Sacrifices.”
As for how the new record is going to sound, Thugger has built up some suspense by referring to it as his “singing album.”
DMX is getting help at a rehab facility before he postponed concert dates.
Sources connected with DMX says he checked himself in Thursday night at a treatment center in Southern California.
X went voluntarily, but his manager, Pat Gallo, and ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, had encouraged the move.
The rapper has been to rehab before while battling substance abuse issues for years.
X had to cancel 3 shows this week due to what his rep called a "medical emergency." He flew to Los Angeles to get help because he felt he was "moving to a dark place" and wanted to make sure he stayed on the right path.
Sources at DMX's show in Brooklyn last week tell us he was drinking heavily beforehand.
In a statement, Gallo apologized to X's fans for the postponed shows, and says, "It is important right now that he take some time off to focus on his health so that he can be a better father, friend and entertainer."
He added, "We are eternally grateful for the outpouring of concern and support that has poured in. We ask that you please keep X in your prayers as he embraces your support."
