Korn’s Ray Luzier Tests Positive for COVID-19, FEVER 333’s Aric Improta Tabbed as Fill-In
Luzier is the third member of Korn to test positive for the virus since the band's return to the road over the summer. First, singer Jonathan Davis contracted COVID-19, which forced the postponement of a handful of dates and, after he recovered, he was still suffering from after-effects that necessitated being seated for part of the headlining performance with the aid of supplemental oxygen onstage as well.
Now, Korn have called on the services of Improta, who spent the summer touring alongside them and co-headliners Staind in FEVER 333, as revealed in a tweet announcing the latest update.
"Unfortunately, Ray has tested positive for COVID, and he will not be playing the next three shows in Vegas, Fresno, and Oakland. Korn will be continuing on as scheduled despite these circumstances. We are anticipating a quick recovery for Ray and he should be back to play the Los Angeles shows with us," says the official statement from Korn.
The group confirmed that FEVER 333's Aric Improta will be playing in Luzier's absence in that same tweet.
Loudwire wishes Luzier and quick and full recovery.
