Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis recently recovered from COVID-19, but he’s still dealing with lingering symptoms while on tour

Fans who see Korn on their summer tour with Staind might notice that frontman Jonathan Davis is using a throne of sorts on the stage. It’s reminiscent to when Dave Grohl and Axl Rose were forced to performed on a throne due to injury.

Davis, who recently recovered from COVID-19, is still dealing with lingering medical issues the virus, so during the band’s show in Indiana last weekend, he sat down to rest during the show on a throne. A fan caught footage of Davis at the concert saying to the audience, “I might be sitting down a little bit tonight, I may be doing s*** a little bit different…just give me some energy, I need something from you guys.”

Grohl’s throne, which he toured with back in 2015 after breaking his leg during a gig, was motorized and decorated with a collection of snazzy guitars. In contrast, Davis’ throne is dark and fits the gothic Korn tone.

Fans wanted to know more about Davis’ condition, so Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch took to Instagram to give some insight into the vocalist’s lingering effects.

“Jonathan Davis is still struggling with the COVID aftereffects,” Head said in a video message. “He’s physically weak and having a mental battle. Any type of love, light and energy you can throw at him, prayers, all of it. We have shows coming up, so all of you guys…whatever show you’re going to, throw him some love and energy, man. He needs you more than ever.”

Korn’s tour is slated to wrap up Oct. 22 and 23 in Los Angeles, California, at Banc of California Stadium. The band was forced to postpone a handful of tour dates earlier this month when Davis announced he contracted COVID-19.
