“Not as funny if you’re home with Covid, but still funny :),” Tankian said. “We had ordered Halloween decorations for our son’s birthday which we had to reschedule along with the 2 SOAD shows.

“I am overwhelmed and extremely grateful for the outpouring of love and concern from friends and strangers alike. I am doing well and hoping to be clear of all symptoms soon.

“I believe that being vaccinated helped minimize my symptoms and suffering. We have many in our community who are resistant to the vaccine. I do understand and am not someone who takes sides on this issue.”

Tankian Thanked System Of A Down Fans

In the continuation of his statement, the singer has shared his honest opinion on COVID vaccines. Saying that vaccines’ side effects should be taken into serious consideration, Serj Tankian thanked System Of A Down fans who sent him best wishes.

“I think every medical situation requires proper understanding of the patients gender, age, medical history and preconditions,” he says.

“Vaccines should be no different and their side effects taken into serious consideration. The health industry cannot operate as a one size fits all on anything anymore. It’s medically irresponsible.

“That said I’m happy I along with my elder parents are vaccinated. Thank you again for all the love.”

System Of A Down‘s two shows at the Banc Of California Stadium in Los Angeles with Helmet, Korn, and Russian Circles were set to be played in May 2020. But unfortunately, the band had to reschedule the dates firstly to May 21 and 22, 2021, and then once again to October 22 and 23, 2021. Now the dates are postponed to next February.
