Korn Cancel ‘Alternative Press Music Awards’ Performance


Korn have issued the below statement announcing that they will no longer be performing live at tomorrow’s (July 17th) ‘Alternative Press Music Awards‘ at the Keybank State Theater in Cleveland, OH due to unforeseen circumstances. Presumably members of the band are still expected to appear at the awards ceremony however, as the group are scheduled to receive the ‘Vanguard Award’ with Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor presenting.

The cancellation is somewhat surprising as the band just finished out a string of three festival shows this weekend. That said, Korn haven’t had the greatest run with awards show performances in the past with as cancelled appearances led to a feud with Revolver magazine.
