Korn Sidelined By David’s Injury

It’s full steam ahead on Korn’s “Sick & Twisted” tour as the band has now rescheduled three shows and found an interim drummer after the band’s David Silveria injured his wrist Friday night.

As we first reported on Monday, the band was forced to cut its Friday night show in Fargo, North Dakota short after the drummer injured the same wrist that caused him to miss a few dates of Korn’s tour with Rob Zombie last year (see “Korn Sidelined By David’s Injury”). The exact nature of the injury remains unknown, and Silveria is slated undergo numerous tests this week.

At the time of Silveria’s injury, the band had to put plans for its shows in Madison, Wisconsin; Moline, Illinois; and Minneapolis, Minnesota on hold. Now Korn has rescheduled those dates and plans to do the same for the aborted Fargo show.

The band has also enlisted the help of drummer Mike Bordin, best known for his work with Faith No More and
Ozzy Osbourne, for the rest of the “Sick And Twisted” tour. Korn is currently rehearsing with Bordin, and is expected to be up to speed for the band’s return to the road this Thursday in Chicago.

When Korn resumes its tour, the band will now hit Madison on March 21, Minneapolis on April 21, and Moline on April 22.

Before being sidelined, Silveria was spotted at the Playboy mansion on Thursday taking part in a celebration for the adult magazine’s April “Sex & Music” issue.

“This time we really went all out with the stage production and it’s turned out really good,” Silveria told MTV News at the time of the tour. “It took a few weeks to get everything in line, and now it’s pretty wild. It’s the best one we’ve done yet.”
