Korn played their first show with fill-in bassist Ra Diaz of Suicidal Tendencies last night at Upheaval festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan. You can see footage above from the appearance. Looks like he did just fine.
Diaz will be filling in on bass all summer. Fieldy made the announcement last month that he was stepping down from the band’s touring plans to deal with what he called “personal issues” and “bad habits.”
Korn made the announcement moments ago, writing “We appreciate your kind words of support in response to the recent tour update about Fieldy. While our brother takes some time to heal, we wanted to let you know that we are bringing our friend Ra Diaz from Suicidal Tendencies out with us this summer to fill in on Korn bass duties. We’ve all been rehearsing to get ready to bring the heat, and we can’t wait to see you next month.”
