KoRn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has confirmed that one of the band’s tour buses was shot at on Thursday, March 24. Taking to Instagram Monday morning, Welch shared a photo of the bullet hole with the caption:
“A couple days ago in Iowa we received a bullet to one of our buses in the middle of the night, nobody on the bus thank God, and the bullet didn’t penetrate the interior of the bus. Well, we’re back in Iowa and hoping for a better welcome tonight Des Moines?! How about bringing some Saturday night energy to a Monday night concert for your boys??!!”
TMZ first reported about the shooting on Friday, saying that the Davenport, IA Police Department had gotten a call around 7:41 AM about a single bullet striking a tour bus parked on the street outside of a hotel. The bullet was found inside the bus’ cabin. No one was on the bus at the time. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
KoRn is currently wrapping up a run of winter/spring tour dates with Chevelle and Code Orange. The band will make stops in Madison, WI on March 29, Oklahoma City, OK on March 31 and Wichita, KS on April 1 before making an appearance at Welcome To Rockville in Daytona Beach, FL on May 20 and embarking on a European tour days later. A full list of tour dates can be found on the band’s website.
KoRn released their latest album, Requiem, in February 2022.
