Korn singer Jonathan Davis has spoken out about his current struggle with aftereffects of COVID.
As some of those Korn fans might remember, Korn announced on August 17 by using its social media channels that they’re forced to cancel and postpone several dates due to the singer Jonathan Davis’ contracting for COVID.
Shortly after the band announced the postponement and cancellation of the shows, Korn guitarist Welch stated about his bandmate Jonathan that he is still struggles aftereffects of the illness. He later added that he is physically weak and having a mental battle. Welch had also asked people to send their prayers to his bandmate, Jonathan Davis.
After Jonathan Davis, who lived difficult times to take breath at certain moments of the show, returned to the live stage with his band Korn‘s recent show at Tinley Park, they’ve played another show at The Pavilion at Star Lake in past Friday. Prior to launching into the song Falling Away From Me, Davis informed people about his struggle with aftereffects of COVID and said it beat him.
“It feels so good to be back, y’all. Some of you might know, some of you don’t, but I’m recovering,” Jonathan told the crowd. “I got COVID, and that shit kicked my motherfucking ass. But I decided I’m not gonna fucking cancel.
“So I might be standing up, I might be sitting in my chair, but I’m gonna give you a hundred motherfucking percent. So let’s scream and have a good motherfucking time tonight.”
